TRWD Employees Respond to Coastal Floods

By September 19, 2017

Hurricane Harvey left a path of destruction along the Texas Coast earlier this month, but it didn’t destroy the Texas spirit.

People from all walks of life came to help save those trapped by raging flood waters in numerous coastal cities. Among those brave souls was a dedicated group of TRWD employees who spent five long days rescuing more than 350 people who were trapped in homes, apartment complexes, assisted living centers and other flooded structures. Needless to say, we at TRWD are proud to call these people co-workers and thankful for their selfless efforts.
