Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner met Saturday with various leaders with the U.S. Conference of Mayors to discuss how the city is rebuilding after Harvey.
Turner says trying to build various flood mitigation projects - such as widening some of the area's bayous and building detention basins - will also be part of the recovery efforts.
