Project Description

The Dagg Stormwater Detention Basin (HCFCD Unit A500-08-00) will help reduce flooding risks in the Clear Creek watershed by storing excess floodwater during times of heavy rain, and releasing it back to the creek when the threat of flooding has passed.

A preliminary engineering report completed in September 2018 evaluated alternatives for the basin, which is proposed at the site of a former sand pit purchased by the Flood Control District in 2017. The report recommended construction of a basin with a permanent pool that will hold approximately 188 acre-feet of stormwater and include features to improve stormwater quality.

The Flood Control District is coordinating plans for the stormwater detention basin with Harris County Commissioner Precinct 1, which manages Adair Park.

To further extend 2018 bond funding, the Dagg Stormwater Detention Basin project was paired with the third phase of the South Belt Stormwater Detention Basin project for construction. These two detention basins complement, but are separate from the Clear Creek Federal Flood Risk Management Project.

Location

The basin will be located on an approximately 22-acre site near the intersection of Cullen Boulevard and the Sam Houston Tollway, just north of Christia V. Adair Park.

Stage

The stormwater detention basin is currently under construction. Construction started in April 2020.

Bond Listing

Bond Project C-05 is a “Local Only” bond project, which means there is no other funding partner at this time and total project costs would be paid with bond funding. Total estimated funds for construction of the Dagg Stormwater Detention Basin and Phase 3 of the South Belt Stormwater Detention Basin is $18.5 million.

As the first step of construction on the site just north of Christia V. Adair Park, contractors filled in a 50-foot deep portion of the site's former sand pit. The fill does not reduce the capacity of the stormwater detention basin because the storage area is above the water level to the top of the stormwater detention basin's banks.

During construction, dump trucks, excavators and bulldozers enter the work area via Dagg Road or Kilnar Road. Motorists should exercise caution to when passing near construction access points and along truck routes.

Bond List

List of 2018 Bond Projects


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 the Project ID on the Map to learn about projects’ details. Some early-stage projects are not highlighted on the map. The map will be updated when projects advance or when more information becomes available.

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.
