in Government/Weather

Devastating storms have plagued the coast of Texas for decades, claiming thousands of lives and damaging homes, businesses, infrastructure, and ecosystems in the process. The Sabine Pass to Galveston Bay Coastal Storm Risk Management Program (S2G) has been established to deliver a cost-effective, ecologically-sound solution that will reduce coastal storm surge risks to residential structures, industries, and businesses in Orange, Jefferson, and Brazoria Counties to ensure the Texas coast remains resilient for years to come.

The S2G Program is comprised of three Coastal Storm Risk Management (CSRM) Projects: improvements to existing hurricane flood protection features in the Freeport and Port Arthur regions, and the construction of a brand new system in southern Orange County.  The Orange County project will consist of a new levee system, including multiple pump stations, which aims to reduce the risk of storm surges for Bridge City,West Orange, Orange, and unincorporated areas of Orange County.

They will host several public open houses being held n April to view informational displays and for officials to answer questions.

The open houses are:

  • Tuesday, April 26. 2022, from 5-8 PM at Bridge City Community Center, 105 Parkside Dr., Bridge City
  • Thursday, April 28. 2022, from 5-8 PM at American Legion Post 49, 108 Green Ave., Orange
  • Saturday, April 39, 2022, from 10 AM – 2 PM at Orange County Convention and Expo Center, 11475 FM 1442, Orange.
