The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Galveston District will hold a public meeting March 9, 2016, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Bear Creek Community Center, 16001 Clay Road, Houston, TX  77084, to update area residents and business owners about the Addicks and Barker Dam Safety Program, the 2016 Addicks and Barker construction plans and the proposed Section 216 Study. 
The USACE Galveston District awarded a contract in the amount of $71,902,340 to Granite Construction Company in 2015 for construction of new outlet structures at the Addicks and Barker Dams in west Houston. 
“The primary objective of the Dam Safety Program is to maintain public safety by ensuring that dams we own and operate are safe and that risks to the public are minimized,” said Col. Richard P. Pannell, Galveston District commander. “It is important to keep those who live and work around Addicks and Barker dams and reservoirs informed.”
