In May 2020, following Harris County Commissioners Court approval of an agreement with an engineering consultant, the Flood Control District initiated the Preliminary Engineering stage for this section of its property. This stage of engineering resulted in a Preliminary Engineering Report (PER) that includes three alternatives for a stormwater detention basin and a recommendation of the most beneficial alternative.
Community engagement is an important part of the PER process. Proposed alternatives were presented to the community for comment during a Bond Program Community Engagement Meeting on June 16, 2021. Harris County Commissioners Court accepted the PER for this project on September 14, 2021. The project is now in the design stage, which will take no less than a year to complete.
