PROJECT DESCRIPTION

This project intends to reduce flooding risks by improving the capacity of Tributary P118-08-00 to convey stormwater during rain events as well as constructing stormwater detention basin(s). Once complete, the preliminary engineering report will identify and evaluate potential flood risk reduction projects for the area. The project may include right-of-way acquisition, design and construction along the tributary.

This project is part the Watershed-Wide Project Implementation Program for Halls Bayou.

This project is located near the intersection of Tidwell Rd and N Wayside Dr

Location

Tributary P118-08-00 is located south of Tidwell Road. The exact project location is yet to be determined.

Stage

This project is currently in the PRELIMINARY ENGINEERING stage. This stage of the project will result in a preliminary engineering report with a recommended project that can be taken to the Harris County Commissioners Court for approval and then advanced to the DESIGN stage. The preliminary engineering report may identify needed right-of-way acquisition, utility relocation and a preliminary cost estimate.

Bond Project Listing

Bond Project C-23 is a potential “Partnership” project. Total allocation for this project is currently $25 million on the Bond Project List, of which approximately $22.5 million would be partnership funding, if granted, and $2.5 million would be local costs.

Additionally, the Flood Control District has been aggressively pursuing multiple grant opportunities, including a grant application to the Texas General Land Office (GLO) for Community Development Block Grant for Mitigation (CDBG-MIT) funding in October 2020 in the amount of about approximately $15.6 million for this project. While that specific application was not awarded, as of December 2021, Harris County is continuing to work with the GLO on a potential $750 million commitment of CDBG-MIT funding for flood risk reduction projects across Harris County.
