RECENT ACTION: November 13, 2018 – Harris County Commissioners Court approved a $578,957 agreement with an engineering firm to conduct preliminary engineering in support of this project

F-72 Baywood Stormwater Detention basin

Project Description

This project involves design and construction of additional stormwater detention capacity in the Baywood Stormwater Detention Basin, HCFCD Unit B513-02-00, in the Armand Bayou watershed. It will reduce flooding risks in the Armand Bayou watershed of southeast Harris County by safely storing excess stormwater during heavy rain events and slowly releasing it back to the bayou when the threat of flooding has passed.

LOCATION

Baywood Stormwater Detention Basin is located on a 136-acre site in the city of Pasadena near the intersection of Red Bluff Road and Genoa Red Bluff Road in southeast Harris County. It is near the confluence of Armand Bayou and its tributary B113-00-00. The confluence with tributary B112-00-00, commonly known as Willowsprings Bayou, is just outside the basin site.

Project Stage

This project is currently in the PRELIMINARY ENGINEERING stage. This stage of the project will result in a Preliminary Engineering Report with a recommended project that can be taken to Harris County Commissioners Court for approval and then advanced to the DESIGN stage. The PER will identify needed right-of-way acquisition, utility relocation and a preliminary cost estimate.
