PROJECT DESCRIPTION

This project will expand the Kluge Stormwater Detention Basin, formally identified as HCFCD Unit L500-02-00, to reduce flooding risks  in the Little Cypress Creek and Cypress Creek watersheds. A phase of this stormwater detention basin was completed in 2015, along with rehabilitation of the Little Cypress Creek tributary formally identified as HCFCD Unit L103-00-00, which crosses the basin site. The basin currently holds more than 325 million gallons, or 1,000 acre-feet, of excess stormwater during periods of heavy rain.

Location

The 146-acre basin site is located just north of Little Cypress Creek, between Kluge Road and Longwood Trace Drive, and a few miles upstream of the confluence with Cypress Creek.

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.

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.
