Why hasn't Houston invested in flood pumps?

Texian
I know this question isn't fitting on this site but it's too complex for Google.
My hometown, Texas City, is a small outskirt town out of Houston and had little flooding in comparison. The thing that has made it so good is because of our pumps that keep the water at bay. Why hasn't a bigger and richer city like Houston done this?
I know the location isn't precisely coastal but that can be worked around.
