Project Description

Bond Project CI-012 involves major maintenance along Cypress Creek and its tributaries to restore channel conveyance capacity. It may include right-of-way acquisition, design and construction along tributaries.

This project will be constructed in 6-8 batches of multiple individual project sites in need of repair. Each batch will be separately designed and put out for construction bidding. Batches 3 and 4 are expected to include major maintenance at multiple sites on Cypress Creek itself. Please check this webpage as the project sites for each subsequent batch are identified and mapped.

Funding from the 2018 HCFCD Bond Program allows the Flood Control District to accelerate and complete several major maintenance projects that may have been deferred in the past due to funding limits. Maintenance projects may involve repairing bank erosion, replacing failed outfall pipes, and removing sediment, among other tasks. The goal is to repair and restore the channel to its original condition so that it can effectively convey stormwater. Maintenance projects do not involve widening or deepening a channel.

List of 2018 Bond Projects


The Harris County Flood Control District has a significant number of flood damage reduction projects occurring all over Harris County as part of its on-going Capital Improvement Program (CIP), Operations and Maintenance, and the 2018 Bond Program.

The map will be updated when projects advance or when more information becomes available.

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.
