PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Bond Project C-25 will make channel conveyance improvements and construct a 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. The stormwater detention basin will provide regional flood risk mitigation benefits and mitigate the increased stormwater flows coming from the improvements made through the two Harris County Engineering Department drainage improvement projects in the Western Homes subdivision and along Aldine Mail Route Road. This project is expected to remove approximately 59 acres from the Tributary P118-21-00 floodplain and 100 acres total across the watershed during a 100-year storm event.

The stormwater detention basin is anticipated to hold 180 acre-feet, or nearly 58.7 million gallons, of stormwater that might otherwise flood homes and businesses. The stormwater detention basin is designed to be a wet-bottom configuration with a vegetated shelf.

P518-07-00: Future site of proposed Stormwater Detention Basin expansion, currently managed by TxDOT.

North of the stormwater detention basin, Tributary P118-21-00 will be shifted west and enlarged to increase its capacity while limiting impacts to the surrounding community through the amount of right-of-way needed for construction. Along Aldine Mail Route Road and north of the road, the channel will be extended as a box culvert system to the Western Homes subdivision and will have a 140-foot top width and 15-foot depth.

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

Location

This project is located along channel P118-21-00, from Halls Bayou to just north of Aldine Mail Route Road.

Stage

This project is in the CONSTRUCTION stage. Construction of the stormwater detention basin is expected to be complete during spring 2022 and the channel conveyance improvements are expected to be complete during fall 2022.
