I'm sure that all of us familiar with the place were just bracing for
this.

For those who are not, the rustically named Buffalo Bayou the media is
talking about downtown got dredged downstream into the Houston Ship Channel
down to Galveston Bay.  There are miles and miles of refineries and
industrial operations along that waterway, both for the convenience of
being supplied by water and the ease with which they could send their waste
downstream to the Gulf of Mexico.  You used to be able to see the film of
their byproduct floating for miles and miles.  If the water level comes up,
it means that tons of this will not be continuing out to the Gulf and will
wind up over the city.
