American engineer Jacobs and Canadian consultant Stantec have been chosen by the US Army Corps of Engineers to design a USD 1.9 billion levee system in Texas. The eight-year Orange County Coastal Storm Risk Management project will build 43km of flood defences from Sabine Pass to Galveston Bay. They are intended to improve the area’s resistance to natural disasters, rising seas and land subsidence. The area has been repeatedly hit by extreme weather conditions in the last decade, including Hurricane Harvey.

Jacobs and Stantec will work with 20 small local business that will account for 40% of the design budget.

Construction due to begin in 2022 and complete in 2026.
