If the bond election is successful, projects would be authorized individually for funding by Harris County Commissioners Court. The actual timing of individual projects will depend on a variety of factors including environmental permitting and right-of-way acquisition. Projects will be authorized individually for funding by Commissioners Court, based on recommendations by the Flood Control District.
