Letter to the editor: Appreciation to DD7 for work amid Imelda

I would like to personally thank Brian McZeal and the workers of Drainage District 7 for their phenomenal work provided to the City of Port Arthur during Tropical Depression Imelda.

Your professional service protected us and prevented us from suffering the destructive flooding received by Winnie, Beaumont and numerous surrounding cities.

Your efforts proved to be a great success for the City of Port Arthur! I take this opportunity on behalf of all the citizens of Port Arthur to say a heartfelt “thank you.”

— Remus Texada Jr., Port Arthur
