From this article:,

Subsidence, as geologists call the phenomenon, is just one of the unanticipated consequences of rapid growth that have come to plague Houstonians. The city's roads, services, and even the very land beneath it, have been unable to sustain it all.

and: Moreover, downtown Houston is sinking fast, too. A recent computer simulation of the process suggested that it could sink 14 feet more by the year 2020 if nothing but ground water was used to satisfy future demand.

Blinding speed can compensate for a lot of deficiencies. -- David Nichols
