This project (Project
ID: P118-00-00-E007) will construct a regional stormwater detention
basin along the main stem of Halls Bayou, near Keith Wiess Park and west of
Aldine-Westfield Road, 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.
Phase 1 of this project, Bond Project C-25, will make channel
conveyance improvements to Tributary P118-21-00 and a stormwater detention
basin that will be incorporated into this project.
All projects included within C-41 will make improvements to the
main stem of Halls Bayou.
This project is part the Watershed-Wide Project Implementation Program for Halls Bayou.
