“Coffee Break with Dan Crenshaw” Will Discuss Flood Projects in Second Congressional District

U.S. Congressman Dan Crenshaw will host a webinar on Zoom this Thursday, May 21 at 10:00 a.m. His special guest will be Russ Poppe, Executive Director of Harris County Flood Control. The two will discuss preparedness for hurricane season and the status of flood damage reduction projects throughout the second U.S. congressional district in Texas.

The second district makes an arc around the north and west sides of Houston. So expect the discussion to cover more than just the Lake Houston area. Likely topics will include (but by no means are limited to):

  • Additional flood gates for Lake Houston
  • Addicks Reservoir
  • Houston Ship Channel
  • White Oak Bayou
  • Other local projects with shared Federal funding.

Attendees can ask questions online. Organizers have committed most of the time to answering those questions. The discussion should last 45 minutes, and in no case will exceed an hour.

Interestingly, Justin Lurie, the moderator, ran against Crenshaw in the last election.

You can join the webinar from a PC, Mac, iPad, iPhone or Android device.

Hope to see you online.
