Project Description

This is a wetland restoration project to create wetland mitigation credits that will be used to offset permitted wetland impacts caused by other Flood Control District projects.


An exact location has not yet been determined. The project will be located somewhere within the Clear Creek or Armand Bayou watersheds.


This project involving HCFCD Unit A700-01-00 is in the FEASIBILITY STUDY stage. This stage will result in the identification of a property suitable for wetland restoration and mitigation. Once a property is selected, the project will go into the next phase of RIGHT-OF-WAY/PROPERTY ACQUISITION. Property acquisition will go to Harris County Commissioners Court for approval.

Project Lifecycle

Every flood damage reduction project is unique. Yet each project begins and ends, with common and predictable milestones along the way. Whether a project moves forward – and how quickly – depends on many factors, including the availability of funding at each milestone, shifting community priorities for flood damage reduction, and other changing circumstances (such as the price of trees or concrete) from year to year.
