Project Description

The Cutten Stormwater Detention Basin Improvements (HCFCD Unit P500-02-00), located on a 235-acre site near Cutten Road and State Highway 249, will reduce flooding risks in the Greens Bayou watershed by taking in excess stormwater during heavy rain events and then releasing it slowly back to the bayou when the threat of flooding has passed.

 

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.
