Houston Flood Lawsuits: The Controlled Release of Waters During Hurricane Harvey

Eminent Domain and Inverse Condemnation Claims in the Aftermath of Hurricane Harvey

Controlled Release of Water from the Addicks/Barker Reservoirs and Lake Conroe - The wrath of Hurricane Harvey was felt across the city of Houston and beyond in late August.

The “Controlled Release” of Water from the Addicks/Barker Reservoirs and from Lake Conroe Resulted in Catastrophic Flooding for Numerous Houston Neighborhoods

Because officials hoped to avoid a spillover at the reservoirs once they reached peak capacity, the Army Corp of Engineers made the decision to begin a “controlled release” of water out of the Addicks and Barker reservoirs back into the Buffalo Bayou.
