Projects and Programs

Building new flood damage reduction projects helps reduce flooding risks for Harris County homes and businesses, while other programs maintain our drainage investment, plan for the future, and turn stormwater detention basins and channels into community amenities and environmental assets.

Bond Program

2018 Bond Program

On August 25, 2018, Harris County voters approved $2.5 billion in bonds to finance flood damage reduction projects. This additional funding, together with other funding sources, supports a wide variety of recovery and resiliency initiatives.

Capital Program

Capital Improvement Program

Capital projects are projects that expand the current drainage system to reduce flooding risks. These projects can be financed by bonds, annual tax-supported appropriations, grants and other sources.

Maintenance Programs

Maintenance Programs

Along with mowing and routine maintenance of the county’s 2,500 miles of channel, dozens of stormwater detention basins and thousands of buyout lots, the Flood Control District conducts major maintenance to repair damage caused by storms and erosion.

Additional Programs

Additional Programs

Harris County Flood Control District’s activities have diversified since its creation in 1937. From tree planting and environmental programs to Voluntary Home Buyouts and more, these additional programs help the Flood Control District fully meet its mission.


ACTIVE PROJECTS

The Flood Control District builds and maintains numerous capital improvement and major maintenance projects throughout the county. These projects are organized, coordinated, and managed with respect to the watersheds they affect.
