Abstract : The proposed action of the Root River basin consists of 3.1 miles of levees and 0.2 miles of road raises at Houston and encouragement of floodplain regulation and flood insurance at other flood-prone communities. The construction of the levee would result in temporary noise, increased traffic, possible dust pollution and road detours. Existing vegetation at the construction site would be destroyed. (Author)
