Since its creation, the Harris County Flood Control District's role has become increasingly complex. Whereas, its original role was to serve as the local partner for major projects with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, many other facets of reducing flood risks in Harris County have come into play.
Accordingly, the mission of the Harris County Flood Control District is to:
Provide flood damage reduction projects that work, with appropriate regard for community and natural values.
The District accomplishes its mission by:
- Devising flood damage reduction plans;
- Implementing the plans; and
- Maintaining the infrastructure.
