Message from the Executive Director 
Dr. Tina Petersen

Over the past month, we have been putting in place "return to work" plans per Harris County health and safety guidelines. I am looking forward to welcoming all of you back to the office in the coming weeks! As we prepare to return to the office, your safety and wellbeing is our primary focus. I am grateful to our HR team for sharing tips and guidance as we all navigate this transition, and there is more to come - so stay tuned.  I also want to recognize those of you whose positions did not allow for remote work. Your commitment to showing up, despite the uncertainty and challenges of the past two years, is truly appreciated. 


We have continued the positive momentum on partnership funding this past month. The Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) approved a $2.2 million grant to fund construction of Phase 2 of the Lauder Stormwater Detention Basin in the Greens Bayou watershed.  This is just one example of the Flood Control District's continued focus on pursuing partnership funding for flood risk reduction projects for our community, and we appreciate the support from the TWDB on this important project.
