C-37 West Little York Stormwater Detention Basin 

Project Description

This project would provide additional stormwater detention in support of flood damage reduction in the Addicks Reservoir Watershed. Stormwater detention basins reduce flooding risks by storing excess stormwater during heavy rain events and slowly releasing it back to the bayou when the threat of flooding has passed.

Location

The West Little York Stormwater Detention Basin, HCFCD Unit U500-01-00, is located north of West Little York Road and west of Highway 6 on Langham Creek, HCFCD Unit U100-00-00, in the Addicks Reservoir watershed of West Harris County.

Project Stage

This project is currently in the DESIGN stage. This stage of the project will result in engineering documents and a bid-ready project manual necessary to take the project into the bidding process and to the CONSTRUCTION stage.
