F-72 Baywood Stormwater Detention Basin

The Baywood Stormwater Detention Basin (HCFCD Unit B513-02-00) is located on Armand Bayou near the intersection of Red Bluff Road and Genoa Red Bluff Road in the city of Pasadena. It will reduce flooding risks in southeast Harris County by storing excess stormwater during heavy rain events and slowly releasing it back to the bayou when the threat of flooding has passed.

A Preliminary Engineering Report on the project will explore alternatives for design of the basin, which will be excavated on a 136-acre site near the confluence of Armand Bayou and its tributary, B113-00-00. The final capacity of the basin will be determined during the final design stage that will follow the preliminary engineering stage.
