Galveston District to Host Stakeholder Partnering Forum

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Galveston District, will host a one-day Stakeholder Partnering Forum August 4th 2016, from 10 a.m. to 3:15 p.m., to introduce the district’s new commanding officer, Col. Lars Zetterstrom, and discuss Southeast Texas Flood Risk Management partnering successes, challenges and opportunities during the 2015-2016 floods.

This forum provides us with an opportunity to meet with non-federal sponsors, customers and agency partners to collaborate and gather feedback that will help us make better informed decisions as we work together on shared efforts for assessing and improving integrated watershed management as well as examine current challenges along the Texas coast,” said Col. Lars Zetterstrom, USACE Galveston District commander.

The forum will identify opportunities to better synchronize and integrate the district’s support of stakeholder commitments and emerging interests such as: the Coastal Texas Protection and Restoration and Houston Ship Channel Improvement mega studies; and the Sabine Neches Waterway Project and Jefferson County ecosystem restoration feasibility study; and modernizing the Brazos River Floodgates and Colorado River Locks.
