This project will construct a stormwater detention basin on Willow Springs Bayou, HCFCD Unit B112-00-00, in the Brookglen area of La Porte. Engineering design and construction will be funded by a U.S. Department of Agriculture grant through the Natural Resources Conservation Service and its Emergency Watershed Protection Pilot Program. Bond ID C-06 will provide additional right-of-way property acquisition.

This stormwater detention basin project was recommended by a feasibility study of the Brookglen area, completed in January 2020. That study – which was funded by the 2018 HCFCD Bond Program, Bond ID CI-021 – investigated flooding problems and evaluated potential solutions to reduce the risk of flooding for as many as 62 homes in the city of La Porte’s Brookglen area. The analysis also determined the need for local drainage improvements to effectively support any flood control project, because of the neighborhood’s ‘bowl’-shaped topography.
