Project Description

The goal of this work is to identify projects to reduce or eliminate existing flooding risks. 

The three projects in this scope of work include: 

  • An update to the 2003 Texas Water Development Board “Regional Drainage Plan and Environmental Investigation for Major Tributaries in the Cypress Creek Watershed,” Bond Project CI-035 
  • An investigation of the potential benefit of expanding Cypress Park Stormwater Detention Basin, HCFCD Unit K500-01-00, Bond Project CI-36. 
  • An investigation of the potential benefit of possible stormwater detention sites near Cypress Creek and Stuebner Airline Road, Bond Project CI-020

List of 2018 Bond Projects


This project is in the engineering investigation or FEASIBILITY STUDY stage. This stage will result in the identification of major general components of a plan to address an identified flooding issue. These components can then be considered in detail in the PRELIMINARY ENGINEERING stage.


This project is located in the Cypress Creek watershed of north Harris County.

Bond Project Listing

Bond Projects CI-035, CI-36, and CI-020 are categorized as “Local Only” bond projects. This means there is no other funding partner at this time and total project costs would be paid with bond funding. The Bond Project List includes a combined allocation for these three projects of $600,000.

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.

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.


Community Engagement Meeting

Two Community Engagement Meetings for this project were held October 21, 2019, at Klein High School Cafeteria, 16715 Stuebner Airline Road, and October 24, 2019, at Houston's First Baptist Church, 11011 Mason Road.
