In some cases, residents, community organizations or governmental agencies desire more mowing than our regular maintenance program and flood damage reduction priorities can provide. In those instances, the Flood Control District may enter into various types of agreements for additional maintenance provided and paid for by those residents, organizations or agencies.
- A municipal utility district might take over mowing for a channel via a Mowing Reimbursement Agreement. The MUD would be reimbursed for the three times per year the Flood Control District would have mowed.
- Individuals may “adopt” a neighborhood buyout lot for mowing and other approved purposes through our Open Space Program.
- A Homeowners Association might enter into a public recreation agreement to use a detention basin for soccer fields, which will include mowing.
For more information on the Open Space Program and multi-use agreements, please contact the Flood Control District at (713) 684-4000 and ask for the Community Services Division.
