Subdivision Drainage Improvement Projects
The Flood Control District works with other agencies, and shares jurisdiction over flooding issues in Harris County. Inside neighborhoods, internal drainage systems include underground storm sewer systems and roadside ditches, and are typically the responsibility of the underlying municipality, utility district and/or Harris County in unincorporated areas of the county. The larger bayous and channels that take the collected stormwater and move it through the drainage system to Galveston Bay are the responsibility of the Flood Control District, and sometimes these drainage systems are constructed by the Flood Control District.
Subdivision drainage projects are managed by the Recovery and Resiliency Division (RRD) of the Harris County Engineering Department to improve the internal drainage systems and related infrastructure that convey stormwater from neighborhoods to major drainage channels or bayous maintained by the Flood Control District. Internal drainage systems include underground storm sewer systems and roadside ditches, and are typically the responsibility of the underlying municipality, utility district and/or Harris County in unincorporated areas.
As the manager of subdivision drainage improvement projects, RRD is responsible for developing drainage improvement recommendations, conducting community outreach meetings, and preparing preliminary engineering reports, designing and constructing these projects.
If a bond project community engagement meeting has been held for one of these projects, meeting materials are available on the Flood Control District’s subdivision drainage improvement project webpage.
