August 28, 2018 – Harris County Commissioners Court authorized and initiated this project

This project will improve channel conveyance improvements to reduce flooding risks along the Cedar Bayou tributary formally identified as HCFCD Unit Q130-00-00.


Q130-00-00 is a 2.87-mile long unnamed tributary near the northeastern corner of Harris County, roughly bisected by Highway 90.


This project is currently undergoing detailed alternatives analysis as part of the feasibility investigation stage. This effort will result in more detailed recommendations for flood damage reduction projects and an implementation strategy for those projects.

Bond Listing

Bond Project F-44 is a “Local Only” project, which means there is no funding partner identified at this time, and the project will be funded entirely from the 2018 Bond Program. The Bond Project List includes a total allocation for all stages and phases of this project of $18 million.

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. Click on the red and orange highlighted areas to learn about projects' details. Some early-stage projects are not highlighted in the map. The map will be updated when projects advance or when more information becomes available.

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. 



No public meeting is scheduled at this time.
