Stop development that causes flooding in Humble/Kingwood/Atascocita
This petition had 1,021 supporters
Over the last few years flooding in the Humble/Kingwood/Atascocita area has continuely gotten worse however developments keep going up. One major concern to many is the recent addition of Main Event and Costco along Townsen Blvd in Humble. This area is slated to have new homes built along Townsen Blvd. This area of Humble recently saw major flooding in 2016 and 2017 from the San Jac river. These homes would be destroyed. More concrete in the area will result in more homes and businesses currently in the area to experience even more flooding than previous floods. More homes and businesses flooding will put more strain on our emergency personnel, military branches, government officials, volunteers and residents.
Hundreds of acres of heavily wooded areas are disappearing at an alarming rate and yet we scratch our heads as to why the flood levels keep rising. One mature tree can drink 100-200 gallons of water a day! You do the math of thousands of trees being cut down in our area. No amount of ditch, detention/retention ponds and drainage system is going to account for the amount of concrete and tree removal we are doing.
I'm asking that we stop developments that are going to go up in a flood zone to help prevent loss of homes/businesses and most importantly to prevent loss of life.
