Fort Worth Residents Disappointed

About flooding, lack of answers and funding.

You think?

Don't worry the Trinity River Vision will solve the flood problems by rerouting the river and building a city in the middle of it.  That should help.


Read about it in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
Be sure and read the comments.

What happens when nothing gets done? It just gets worse.

Simmons said the city has looked at some obvious ways to improve drainage such as installing bigger pipes. Cost estimates for those solutions range from $30 million to more than $150 million per neighborhood, he said.

"Unfortunately part of the city was built along old streambeds," Councilman Carter Burdette told residents. "It worked perfectly well until the city started growing, and it's done a great deal of growing in the past few years."
