THIS IS A MULTI-WATERSHED PROJECT THAT INVOLVES LUCE AND CEDAR BAYOUS AND THE SAN JACINTO  WATERSHEDS

Project Description

This project consisted of an engineering investigation into the sources of flooding in and around the Huffman area and identified preliminary options to reduce flooding. Preliminary recommendations were generated, based on the analysis.

    • Luce Bayou (S100-00-00) and several tributaries are being analyzed to obtain an understanding of flooding inundation and risks. Multiple projects in this watershed include the Luce Bayou Bypass Channel.
    • East Fork San Jacinto (G103-00-00) was evaluated to estimate the volume of sediment in the channel by comparing the 2001 data to 2018 available digital terrain data.
    • Cedar Bayou (Q100-00-00) and its tributaries were recently studied by HCFCD, and the information within this drainage analysis area was incorporated into the current project analysis.

Location

The Huffman drainage analysis area is an area that roughly coincides with the Huffman Independent School District boundary. This area drains to the San Jacinto River, Luce Bayou, and Cedar Bayou watersheds and consists of to the main stem of these waterways and some of the tributaries within the study area.

Stage

This project is currently in the preliminary engineering stage.

Bond Project Listing

Bond Project F-110 is a “Local Only” project, which means that the project will be funded totally from 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.
