The Harris County Flood Control District is conducting high-level Watershed Planning Projects to identify strategies for mitigation of existing flooding problems in ten multiple Harris County watersheds, and to address improved drainage infrastructure required for future development. Nine watershed planning projects are funded by a U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Community Development Block Grant-Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR awarded to Harris County Community Services Department). These include Armand Bayou, Jackson Bayou, Spring Gully, Galveston Bay, Luce Bayou, Vince Bayou, Goose Creek, Spring Creek and Willow Creek. A similar study for Carpenters Bayou is being funded through the 2018 HCFCD Bond Program. Approximately 10,000 structures flooded within these ten watersheds during Hurricane Harvey – with the most flooded structures located within Armand Bayou, Vince Bayou, and Goose Creek watersheds.
Previous Engineering Reports And Studies for this Watershed
The Flood Control District maintains a large library of engineering reports from various studies and projects related to flooding conditions across Harris County. These include:
- 10 Major Engineering Studies that cover a significant area within the watershed or involve multiple or large proposed projects
- 9 individual drainage study reports for small projects in the watershed.
- 10 Geotechnical and Environmental Studies to support various project activities within the watershed.
