An All-Inclusive Approach to Successfully Preventing Further Subsidence in the Greater Houston Area

Join us for an enlightening seminar featuring Mike Turco, General Manager of the Harris-Galveston Subsidence District, as he sheds light on the pressing issue of subsidence in the greater Houston area. Subsidence, the gradual sinking of land surface due to groundwater extraction, poses significant threats to our infrastructure, homes, and communities.

Drawing on his extensive expertise and leadership at the HGSD, Mike Turco will delve into the critical factors contributing to subsidence and the district's proactive measures to mitigate its effects. Since 1975, the Harris-Galveston Subsidence District has spearheaded initiatives leveraging comprehensive scientific research and collaboration to address subsidence challenges effectively.

In this seminar, Mike Turco will emphasize the importance of adopting a multifaceted approach, including source water diversification, robust data collection techniques, and enhanced water efficiency strategies. By incorporating the latest research and reliable data, Mike will demonstrate how the district is actively working to safeguard lives and property from the detrimental impacts of subsidence.
