PROJECT UPDATE - 9/29/2021

When the W151-00-00 and W153-00-00 study was initiated and in the first several months of the effort, we explored several potential flood reduction options in the study area concerning these channels. Before starting to evaluate the options in detail, we learned that the City of Houston applied for a grant to fund a flood reduction project in the same area, which has since been awarded.

Now that the City has obtained grant funding to develop a flood reduction project in the area, the Flood Control District will use its funds to explore and recommend flood reduction measures that complement the City’s plans in order to maximize the flood reduction benefit. The City is currently in the process of selecting a consultant. Once the City is able to share their early designs, the Flood Control District will restart our effort to finalize our study options and recommendations.

Because this is a Bond Program effort, it will include a community engagement meeting, at which point we will be able to share with you our recommendation, its benefits, and the combined benefits of the total effort described here.
