"Good morning. Good morning good to be here. You held a public meeting about a week. And a half ago in kingwood to offer updates on a pair of flood mitigation projects and i thought maybe we could start there. Can you catch us up on. What's happening with efforts to dredge the santa river and and also plans to expand the the lake. Houston dam's spillway sure. That meeting was on thursday. July eight we had in kingwood and we went basically over four subjects The ongoing dredging operations that we have not only in the sanjay santo ever but in lake houston Where we are with the construction of additional gates onto the existing lake houston spillway dam and then we went through the north park expansion project where we're moving from four lanes to six lanes and also gave an update on some tributaries within the king area.

Today we can only release one foot of water. Every twenty four hours with the new gates will be able to release minimum of four feet of water that every twenty four hour period so it gives us a little bit of an opportunity where we see rain coming and we don't anticipate about a rainfall to react In in move relatively quickly. What are you hearing from residents In response to the state of that project and the importance of it of course you hear a lot of negative and that is we need it today because we have three more hurricane seasons to get through including the one..
