It’s a really good program management opportunity and working alongside Texas GLO we have the opportunity to address the growing flooding risks to increase the resiliency of communities across Texas. This is about a $85M program on flood studies alone, so we need to help the state ensure that this money is being spent appropriately and where it has the greatest impact.
