"Extreme Weather: Massive Texas Coastal Protection Plan Taking Shape"

"GALVESTON, Texas — The Army Corps of Engineers is urging public input on a sprawling proposal that could help protect Texas' coastal areas but whose details are far from certain.

The plan — with a possible price tag of $23 billion to $32 billion — envisions a surge barrier system as well as dune and beach work and ecosystem restoration.

The project would supplement, and possibly improve, the existing sea wall along the Gulf of Mexico here. It emerged as a tentative choice through an ongoing study from the Army Corps and the Texas General Land Office."
