City of Seadrift awarded Disaster Mitigation Project
$16 million granted by Texas GLO for historic disaster mitigation projects in Calhoun County Funds to improve roads, sewer and drainage infrastructure approved for Calhoun County, City of Seadrift.
Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush, Texas State Senator Lois W. Kolkhorst, County Judge Richard Meyer and Mayor Elmer DeForest announce the Texas General Land Office (GLO) approved more than $16 million in flood mitigation projects to improve roads, sewer and drainage infrastructure in Calhoun County and the City of Seadrift. These infrastructure projects will directly benefit thousands of residents in majority low-to-moderate income (LMI) areas at high risk of hurricanes and tropical storms.
This project will increase the resiliency of the existing drainage system in the city of Seadrift. Seadrift often experiences flooding due to inadequate ditch and culvert capacity and the inability of the system to quickly drain water runoff, leaving this low-income community flooded with standing water for a moderate amount of time.
City of Seadrift: Drainage Improvement Project - $4,850,939.04
LMI Percentage: 56.68%
