One obvious answer is Harvey. However, the process of developing a subdivision is a process that must safeguard against extreme weather events.
The area around your home and subdivision must be taken into account in designing a residential development. And each neighborhood must be designed to drain properly under heavy rains.
The developer’s duty of prudent development includes thorough study and analysis, and taking design and engineering steps to ensure proper drainage, to protect the area against high water events.
There are many reasons a home floods other than “it just rained too much.” Wham & Rogers, PLLC is beginning the process of examining these reasons to determine if more should have been done in the development and construction in The Woodlands and surrounding areas.
