RESTORE BARKER & ADDICKS RESERVOIRS
Restore and add to the capacity of both Barker & Addicks reservoirs. The two reservoirs should be excavated so that all private property currently subject to inundation upstream of the reservoirs would never be at risk of inundation again. The overflow weirs for the reservoirs should be lowered and placed on government-owned land at elevations that would never allow flooding to occur on private property. COST: $2.5 Billion
STRATEGIC BUYOUT OF EXTREME FLOOD-PRONE HOMES
Long overdue project to buyout homes and remove people from harm’s way. The additional land will be used for improved conveyance as well widening bayous and streams. COST: $8.5 Billion
INCREASE BAYOU CONVEYANCE
The HoustonStronger flood plan calls for doubling the amount of floodwater conveyance for drainage systems in Harris County.  Plain and simple…controlling flooding is about getting as much water possible into the drainage systems, out to the bayous and into Galveston Bay as quickly and effectively as possible. Again, this portion of the HoustonStronger plan doubles the amount of floodwater conveyance.  COST: $23.20 Billion  
CONSTRUCT LITTLE CYPRESS RESERVOIR
This reservoir will protect property and citizens downstream along Cypress Creek from the peak runoff that occurs when large rain events occur over the Little Cypress Creek watershed. COST: $300 Million 
GALVESTON COUNTY COASTAL SPINE PROJECT
No project within the HoustonStronger flood plan affects more lives and critical infrastructure than the Galveston County Coastal spine.  We learned in 2008 during Hurricane Ike how desperately we need this. This coastal spine will protect our petrochemical industry, our ports and hundreds of thousands of Texans who live in the gulf coast region. COST: $12.4 Billion
FORT BEND COUNTY BRAZOS RIVER RESTORATION
HoustonStronger regional flood plan calls for restoration and maintenance of the Brazos River. The Brazos River is the principle drainage artery for Fort Bend County. After numerous significant rain events, the Bravos River has eroded and is in need of significant restoration. COST: $1.45 Billion 
MONTGOMERY COUNTY RESERVOIR SYSTEM
The HoustonStronger regional flood plan includes construction of flood control reservoirs to protect communities along Spring Creek and Lake Creek. COST $1.60 Billion 
CITY OF HOUSTON DRAINAGE
COST $6 Billion
PORT OF HOUSTON SHIP CHANNEL RESTORATION
The Port of Houston is the largest port in international tonnage in the world.  The Port of Houston is a massive economic driver for our region.  The ability for the Port of Houston to operate at its maximum  output benefits every single citizen and business in the entire Gulf Coast region. HoustonStronger regional flood plan calls for the necessary dredging and restoration to place the Port of Houston at its maximum output. COST $1 Billion
PORT FREEPORT HARBOR CHANNEL
This harbor channel is in dire need of dredging and restoration and the HoustonStronger regional flood plan calls for just that. COST $500 Million  
TRINITY RIVER BUYOUT & RESTORATION
$20 Million
