September 15, 2020 – Harris County Commissioners Court awarded a $945,096 contract for construction of repairs to this existing stormwater detention basin.


Repairs are planned in 2020 to this stormwater detention basin and associated section of the B104-04-00 drainage channel near Ellington Field. Originally constructed as stormwater mitigation for the construction of Space Center Boulevard, the basin is formally identified as HCFCD Unit B504-01-00.

The project will involve earthen repairs to the basin so that it will appropriately drain between storm events, leaving no open water to attract birds near the airfield. The project also will replace failed sections of concrete lining in the associated channel, replace stormwater outfall pipes and inlet structures, and install interceptor structures to help direct stormwater into the channel, to minimize future erosion.
