Cmr. George P. Bush announces Texas GLO seeking experts to develop river basin flood study

AUSTIN — Commissioner George P. Bush announced Monday the Texas General Land Office (GLO) issued a request for qualifications solicitation to develop a $75 million planning study, consisting of three regionalized studies based on Texas’ major river basins, to evaluate mitigation and abatement strategies to reduce disaster impacts and increase community resiliency.

“Hurricane Harvey’s devastation was unprecedented, but Texas continues to pull together to help one another rebuild stronger and more resilient,” said Commissioner Bush. “It is critical for communities to work together to develop strategies to mitigate flooding both upstream and downstream. This study will not only help ensure funds are used where they are most needed, but it will also be key in protecting against future catastrophes.”
