Why Does It Flood and What Can Be Done About It?

 

Water-management engineer and attorney Larry Dunbar will provide answers to those questions specifically addressing:

 

1.      Does development have a role in why flooding is occurring in the Houston area with greater frequency and severity?

2.      What are the responsibilities of those doing the development?

3.      What are the rights, if any, of those who buy property from a developer that gets flooded?

4.      What considerations should a company (or an individual) consider when evaluating whether to buy real estate in the greater Houston area?

5.      Who are the authorities (federal, state, local) responsible for managing flood control?

6.      What past measures have been taken to mitigate flooding and why didn’t they work during Harvey’s visit?

7.      What initiatives are under consideration to mitigate future flooding and how likely are they to be effective?

8.      What are the legal actions being pursued at this time?
