水災平臺

“My family lost our car, almost lost our lives, and had to sleep on a stranger’s floor when we were stranded by flooding. We need to start acting proactively to prevent these tragedies.”

我們的社區對於惡劣的天氣及水災並不陌生。隨著氣候變遷,自然災害也因此更加頻繁及嚴重,像哈維颶風就是一個例子。我們必須加強基礎設施、擴大救濟政策,以及使用更智能化的檢測工具,以能妥善保護我們的社區。 

我將在國會中倡議: 

  • Strengthen the 20 levees in Fort Bend, and identify new areas that require drainage infrastructure. Hurricane Harvey 淹沒了Fort Bend福遍縣至少900戶受堤防保護的房屋。—we need stronger protection for our communities.
  • Expedite the distribution of Harvey relief funding and streamlining the relief funding process
  • 在凱蒂市(Katy)地區投資較大的雨水管道和水泵,尤其是在布拉左斯河(Brazos river)附近。 
  • 與地方政府進行協調,以確保防洪項目的正確實施,例如在凱蒂市(Katy)的Patna Drive排水改善項目,以及Pitts Road的滯洪池。
  • Revise the floodplain maps
  • Devise and installing a system for coastal surge protection
  • Incentivize public-private partnerships for flood mitigation projects
  • 擴大負擔得起的優質洪水保險計劃;簡化洪水保險申請流程。
