First off, we live in a bloody swamp.

Second, I didn't know we used that much ground water.  There's goddamn water everywhere around here.  Without researching, the only reason I can see why we use that much is because it is cheaper to process (or whatever).

Strangely fitting for a city built from the oil industry. Built on oil and swallowed by the rising seas.

It's OK.  If your city subsides enough that the ocean can run in, the incoming ocean will permeate the ground and the subsidence will cease.  Problem solved.

"Alamo Beach", and "Boardwalk River Walk" are already being considered by developers.

If God had meant for humans to live in Houston, we would have one of those meat thermometers in our heads to pop when were done.

The Hyatt can upgrade to a wave pool in the lobby.
