C-01 HALLS BAYOU TRIBUTARY P118-26-00 AND STORMWATER DETENTION BASINS P518-26-01 AND P518-26-02

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

This project involves channel conveyance improvements on channel P118-26-00, with connections to, and construction of, Phase 1 of the Helms Stormwater Detention Basin, formally known as stormwater detention basin P518-26-01, which is located on channel P118-26-00 near Helms Road.

Stormwater detention basins reduce flooding risks and damages during heavy rain events by safely storing excess stormwater and slowly releasing it back to the bayou when the threat of flooding has passed.

This project is part the Watershed-Wide Project Implementation Program for Halls Bayou.

Location

This project includes the entire one-mile length of channel P118-26-00, which is located north of Halls Bayou and east of Airline Drive, from near Holtman Street to the confluence with Halls Bayou. The basin sites are located adjacent to the channel, near E. Helms Road.

Project Stage

This project is currently in the FINAL DESIGN stage.

Bond Project Listing

Bond Project C-01 is a “Partnership” project. The Flood Control District has applied for a Community Development Block Grant-DR grant in connection with this project. The total budget allocation for this project is currently $1 million on the Bond Project List, of which approximately $1 million would be partnership funding, if granted.

Bond Program 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.
