The recent flooding has exposed the state's major shortcomings in flood control infrastructure.
Woodland Hill, CA (PRWEB) July 28, 2015
Infocast’s 4th Lone Star Water Summit is coming to the Hilton in Austin, TX this September 9 – September 10, 2015. The event will primarily focus on key financiers and project developers gathering to discuss the P3 opportunities in Flood Mitigation Infrastructure in Texas.
In 2012, the American Society of Civil Engineers gave Texas a “D” infrastructure rating. This rating has become increasingly apparent as major torrential downpours have swept Texas leading to the worst flooding in the state in more than 30 years this spring. According to a report by NPR, an estimated 37.3 trillion gallons of water fell in Texas which resulted in twenty-one deaths. The recent flooding has exposed the state’s major shortcomings in flood control infrastructure.
Luckily, State and Federal Initiatives like S.B. 1048, the Public and Private Facilities and Infrastructure Act along with the Water Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act are put in place to help private stakeholders organize and participate in Public Private Partnerships in Texas.
As the leading business intelligence and networking events producer in the water industry, Infocast’s 4th Lone Star Water Summit will give attendees the opportunity to provide feedback to the Texas agencies responsible for flood mitigation across the state: The Governor’s Division of Emergency Management, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, and the Texas Water Development Board as they discuss policy, project funding, and development opportunities essential to developing critically-needed Texas Water Infrastructure.
