Addicks-Barker Flooding Lawsuit

Flooding, News & Blog

Starting on August 26-28, 2017, the federal government stored massive amounts of stormwater from Tropical Storm Harvey in Addicks and Barker Reservoirs. As a result, both reservoirs reached historically high levels and flooded many thousands of homes and businesses which were built within the reservoirs’ maximum “design pools.” Irvine & Conner has filed a class action lawsuit that asserts that the federal government cannot use private property to store federal floodwaters without providing compensation.
