Washington, D.C.- “I am pleased to see that the Harris County Commissioners Court authorized a de-silting study and work for the Bear Creek area,” said Congressman Ted Poe. “Since the massive floods earlier this year, I have been working very closely with Harris County Flood Control District to ensure that we protect the community and neighborhoods in the surrounding area. I look forward to working with the community, Corps of Engineers and the Harris County Flood Control District as we continue to make progress on alleviating the flooding risk for my constituents living around Addicks and Barker reservoirs.”
