NORTH CHANNEL – Construction is progressing on schedule, and on budget, according to Harris County Precinct 2 coordinator Jeremy Phillips.
The $12.8 million dollar project started with an official groundbreaking last November 6th, as reported in the inaugural issue of the North Channel Star.
In his opening remarks, at that time Pct. 2 commissioner Jack Morman noted the benefit to the community, and that the money to pay for the project was primarily from the federal government, as reimbursement for damage from Hurricane Ike. The new storm sewer system should alleviate flooding in a similar hurricane situation, he said.
