Project Description

The proposed improvements to the Kingwood Diversion Ditch include channel modifications, flow diversion from Bens Branch, bridge replacements, as well as the purchase of additional land to construct a new outfall to the West Fork San Jacinto River.

The anticipated reduction in water surface elevations along the Kingwood Diversion Ditch and Bens Branch from the proposed improvements would result in the removal of the 100-year stream inundation area from 62 structures and would allow for local drainage improvements that could benefit an additional 586 historically flooded structures.

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.
