|One of the 72 levee issued repaired: the Little Coombs Creek Conduit on the West Levee, where crap behind the flap gate prevented it from sealing. Crap removed, problem solved.|
For those who didn't take a look at the Trinity River Corridor Committee briefing doc
to which I linked first thing this morning
, Assistant City Manager Jill Jordan told council members this morning that the city's done fixed 72 of 198 problems with the unacceptable levees
. But keep this in mind: Sixty-eight of those repairs are considered relatively minor -- so much to they do not require engineering analysis or U.S. Army Corps of Engineers approval before the work's done. (And by "minor" I mean: mowing and trash removal.) The 23 biggies on the to-do list have been left untouched.
