Buffalo Bayou Park was designed to flood. It spared its surroundings from flooding during Hurricane Harvey. While the park captured a significant amount of sediment, the bayou segment future east of the park suffered from severe erosion. Jose Solis, project manager from the Buffalo Bayou Partnership will compare how the Buffalo Bayou Park and the bayou waterfront area to the east responded to the inland and riverine flooding associated with Hurricane Harvey. He will also share lessons learned for making other bayous waterfront areas in Houston more resilient.
