Land-Surface Subsidence in the Area of Moses Lake Near Texas City, Texas

Description: Abstract: Removal of water, oil, and gas from the subsurface in Harris and Galveston Counties has caused declines in fluid pressures, which in turn have resulted in subsidence of the land surface. Subsidence of the land surface at Moses Lake is due principally to the removal of ground water in adjacent areas. Significant subsidence of the land surface at Moses Lake began after 1900, and as much as 1.8 feet (0.55 meters) of subsidence had occurred in the area by 1973. Probable future subsidence was calculated by two methods for two loading situations. In the first loading situation, case 1, the artesian head in the middle Chicot aquifer, in the Alta Lorna Sand (Rose, 1943), and in the Evangeline aquifer would continue to decline at respective rates of 1, 3, and 3 feet (0.3, 0.9, and 0.9 meters) per year until 1980 and then cease. In the second loading situation, case 2, the artesian head in the middle Chicot aquifer, in the Alta Lorna Sand, and in the Evangeline aquifer would continue to decline at respective rates of 1, 3, and 3 feet (0.3, 0.9, and 0.9 meters) per year until 1990 and then cease.

Land-Surface Subsidence at Seabrook, Texas

Description: Abstract: Removal of water, oil, and gas from the subsurface in Harris and Galveston Counties, Texas, has caused a decline in fluid pressures, which in turn has resulted in subsidence of the land surface. Subsidence of the land surface at Seabrook is due principally to the removal of water. Significant subsidence of the land surface probably began after 1920, and a minimum of about 3.3 feet (1.0 m) and a maximum of about 4.3 feet (1.3 m) of subsidence had occurred at Seabrook by 1973. Probable future subsidence was calculated by two different methods for each of two different loading situations. In the first loading situation, case I, the artesian heads in the Alta Lorna Sand (Rose, 1943) and Evangeline aquifer would continue to decline at the respective rates of 8 feet (2.4 m) per year and 7 feet (2.1 m) per year until 1980 and then cease. In the second loading situation, case II, the artesian heads in the Alta Lorna Sand and Evangeline aquifer would continue to decline at rates of 8 and 7 feet (2.4 and 2.1 m) per year until 1990 and then cease.

Island Empire: the Influence of the Maceo Family in Galveston

Description: From the 1920s until the 1950s, brothers, Sam and Rosario Maceo, ran an influential crime family in Galveston, Texas. The brothers’ success was largely due to Galveston’s transient population, the turbulent history of the island, and the resulting economic decline experienced at the turn of the 20th century. Their success began during Prohibition, when they opened their first club. The establishment offered bootlegged liquor, fine dining, and first class entertainment. After Prohibition, the brothers continued to build an empire on the island through similar clubs, without much opposition from the locals. However, after being suspected of involvement in a drug smuggling ring, the Maceos were placed under scrutiny from outside law enforcement agencies. Through persistent investigations, the Texas Rangers finally shut down the rackets in Galveston in 1957. Despite their influence through the first half of the 20th century, on the island and off the island, their story is largely missing from the current literature.
