Active Projects in Harris County

The Flood Control District builds and maintains numerous capital and major maintenance projects throughout the county. These projects are organized, coordinated and managed with respect to the watersheds they benefit.

Capital Projects

Capital projects reduce flooding risks and damages by expanding channels, constructing new stormwater detention basins or buying out flood-prone homes. Bond funding, federal grants, and local partnerships help finance these projects.

Major Maintenance Projects

Maintenance and storm repair projects keep our flood risk reduction infrastructure working efficiently, as originally designed, or repair it after a major rain event.

Multi-watershed Projects

Some Harris County Flood Control District projects span multiple watersheds.

Some multiwatershed projects are part of our Capital Improvement Program and some are part of our Maintenance Programs.
