Next challenge: infrastructure
General Honoré pointed out that the next challenges for the city of Houston are related to infrastructure — specifically dams and drains.
The dams to the north of the Houston “hold the city hostage every day.” Both dams, the General said, received a D-grade from the American Society of Civil Engineers. “Why would you want a bomb like that sitting north of your city when south of your city you have the biggest petrochemical facilities in the world?”
Houston, he said, needs to hurry up and get the drainage system cleaned. “Immediately they have to have a special task to clean to clean the drainage system.” With the catch basins blocked with debris as they presently are, it would only take an additional 1.5 inches of rain to flood the city.
Every part of the system needs to be cleared and the city needs to contract it out to make sure it gets done now, “not in October.”
