Virtual Public Meeting: Sabine Pass to Galveston Bay (S2G) Program (Orange County Project)
Thursday, May 25, 6:00 – 7:30 pm
The purpose of the online public meeting will be to provide an overview and update on the Sabine Pass to Galveston Bay (S2G) Program and the Orange County Levee Project. The construction project consists of a new levee and floodwall system designed to protect the Cities of Orange, West Orange, Pinehurst, Bridge City, and other communities in the area from hurricane storm surges. For more information on the Project visit the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Orange County Project Page.
The Gulf Coast Protection District was created in 2021 by the 87th regular Texas Legislature to oversee the implementation of an integrated and comprehensive coastal resilience strategy for the upper Texas coast. Specifically, this includes assuming the role of non-Federal sponsor for major portions of the federally funded and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers led Coastal Texas Project and Sabine Pass to Galveston Bay Coastal Storm Risk Management Project.
The Orange County Drainage District serves as an active partner in support of the GCPD, along with representatives of other political subdivisions located within the area expected to be served by the S2G project.
