​​​​HOUSTON – A one-day meeting on stormwater management will be held Sept. 12 at the Trini Mendenhall Community Center, 1414 Wirt Rd.

The meeting, from 9 a.m. unt​il 4 p.m., will be conducted by the Texas Coastal Watershed Program, part of the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service and Texas Sea Grant.

“As we rebound from Harvey’s destructive flooding, we have a unique opportunity to approach stormwater in a new way,” said Celina Gauthier Lowry, AgriLife Extension associate and meeting organizer.

The day is especially pertinent for elected officials and community leaders and structured for information sharing and asking questions about specific issues, especially rebuilding stormwater infrastructure in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, she said.

Registration is $75 and includes four presentations and lunch. To review the speakers and agenda, and to register, go online​ or call 979-845-2604. ​Continuing education credits are available from the American Planning Association and the Texas Floodplain Management Association.
