Harris County approves first round of flood control projects

The Harris County Commissioners Court just gave the green light to 16 new flood control projects.

Last Saturday, voters overwhelmingly approved a $2.5 billion bond aimed at boosting the region's protections against future floods. The projects include drainage improvements to the San Jacinto River, Cypress Creek, Cedar Bayou, as well as de-silting the Addicks and Barker reservoir watersheds.

One neighborhood hit hard by Harvey was Kashmere Gardens and joining us on the Factor is super neighborhood president Keith Downey.
