WASHINGTON (Covering Katy News) – President Trump recently signed America’s Water Infrastructure Act into law which will help speed Army Corps of Engineers projects in places like Houston that were impacted by Hurricane Harvey.
It also includes an amendment that was written by U.S. Rep. Pete Olson, R-TX, to expedite previously authorized Army Corps of Engineers projects in areas impacted by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria.
“This law helps Houston by investing in our ports, channels, locks, flood protection and critical infrastructure projects that support our waterway transportation systems,” Olson said. “After three years of historic flooding – including Harvey – the sooner our communities can begin rebuilding, the sooner we will be prepared for future storms,” Olson added.
