For the past 6 years, I have worked with various levee districts within Fort Bend County, which included preparing for and responding to the flooding events in 2015, 2016, and Harvey in 2017.

This portion of the site is dedicated to sharing my experience and hopefully helping those that manage and live behind levees.
