Project Description

The Huffman Area Drainage Analysis consisted of an engineering investigation into the sources of flooding in and around the Huffman area and identified preliminary options to reduce flooding. Preliminary recommendations were generated, based on the analysis.

  • Luce Bayou (S100-00-00) and several tributaries were analyzed to obtain an understanding of flooding inundation and risks.
    • Recommended projects in this watershed included a proposed bypass channel. At this point in time, the proposed bypass channel project has been cancelled and is not anticipated to resume unless there is community support for this project.
    • Harris County Flood Control District is working with TxDOT on the FM 2100 improvements to complete some minor drainage improvements along TxDOT’s project.
    • Harris County Flood Control District will not move forward with any recommended plans without Commissioner’s Court approval and further community outreach/concurrence.
  • East Fork San Jacinto (G103-00-00) was evaluated to estimate the volume of sediment in the channel by comparing the 2001 data to 2018 available digital terrain data.
  • Cedar Bayou (Q100-00-00) and its tributaries were recently studied by HCFCD, and the information within this drainage analysis area was incorporated into the current project analysis.

Location

The Huffman drainage analysis area is an area that roughly coincides with the Huffman Independent School District boundary. This area drains to the San Jacinto River, Luce Bayou, and Cedar Bayou watersheds and consists of to the main stem of these waterways and some of the tributaries within the study area.

Stage

This project is currently in the preliminary engineering stage.

Bond Project Listing

Bond Project F-110 is a “Local Only” project, which means that the project will be funded totally from the 2018 Bond Program.

PROJECT LIFECYCLE


Every flood damage reduction project is unique. Yet each project begins and ends, with common and predictable milestones along the way. Whether a project moves forward – and how quickly – depends on many factors, including the availability of funding at each milestone, shifting community priorities for flood damage reduction, and other changing circumstances (such as the price of trees or concrete) from year to year.
