Recent Action

August 10, 2021– Harris County Commissioners Court authorized the Flood Control District to apply for a Texas Waters Development Board grant in support of this project

September 24, 2019 – Harris County Commissioners Court authorized and initiated this project

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Bond Project C-24 will construct channel conveyance improvements at Parker Road and construct an approximately 35 acre-ft stormwater detention basin to reduce the risk of flooding by taking in excess stormwater during heavy rain events and then releasing it slowly back to the channel when the threat of flooding has passed.

As part of the preliminary engineering stage, the Flood Control District is evaluating various alternatives, including channel conveyance improvements and stormwater detention basins, to determine the optimal solution for reducing the risk of flooding in this area.

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

This project is located near the intersection of Little York Rd and Homestead Rd

Location

Tributary P118-09-00 is located between Cheeves Drive and Rebel Road in the Scenic Woods neighborhood. 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-24 is a potential “Partnership” project. Total allocation for this project is currently $12 million on the Bond Project List, of which approximately $10.8 million would be partnership funding, if granted, and $1.2 million would be local costs.

The Flood Control District applied for a Community Development Block Grant for Mitigation (CDBG-MIT) grant, and submitted it to the Texas General Land Office in October 2020 in the amount of approximately $36.9 million.

Public Information Session

A series of projects in the Halls Bayou watershed are included in two separate applications for federal funding through the Community Development Block Grant for Mitigation (CDBG-MIT) Program. The projects included are Bond Project IDs: C-01, C-23, C-24, C-26, C-28, C-30 and C-41. A virtual Public Information Session to discuss these projects was held on:

Date: Wednesday, September 23, 2020
Time: 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

The official public comment period for the CDBG-MIT applications will be open from October 3 – October 16, 2020. We encourage residents to learn more about the application process, submit a comment and view the meeting presentation and video:
