PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Bond Project C-28 will construct 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.

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.

Bond Project C-28 will work in conjunction with two proposed Harris County Engineering Department proposed: neighborhood drainage improvements in the Aldine Village subdivision and neighborhood drainage improvements in the Oak Glen Place subdivision.

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

Location

Tributary P118-25-00 is located just upstream (west) of Hardy Toll Road with an approximate length of 0.7 miles and a drainage area of 100 acres. The modeled channel terminates at Aldine Mail Route Road but continues north as a simple roadside ditch. Tributary P118-25-01 intersects Tributary P118-25-00 about 1,200 feet south of Aldine Mail Route 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 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-28 is a potential “Partnership” project with the City of Houston and Harris County. Total allocation for this project is currently $24 million on the Bond Project List, of which approximately $21.6 million is partnership funding and $2.4 million is local funding.

The Flood Control District has applied for almost $12.5 million in funding through the Texas Water Development Board’s (TWDB) Flood Infrastructure Fund in September 2020. The Flood Control District’s application for funding through TWDB was accepted and is pending final approval by TWDB. This funding amounts to 26 percent grant funds and the other 74 percent is a zero-percent loan. The Flood Control District also applied for a Community Development Block Grant for Mitigation (CDBG-MIT). The CDBG-MIT grant application was submitted to the Texas General Land Office in October 2020 in the amount of just under $12.1 million.


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.

Community Engagement Meeting

A virtual community engagement meeting for two flood risk reduction projects in the Halls Bayou watershed (Bond IDs C-25 and C-28) was held on:

Date: Wednesday, May 19, 2021
Time: 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

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:
