Regional drainage plan and environmental investigation for Major tributaries in the Cypress Creek watershed K100-00-00 Cypress Creek

Project Description

The goal of this work is to identify projects to reduce or eliminate existing flooding risks.

The three projects in this scope of work include:

  • An update to the 2003 Texas Water Development Board “Regional Drainage Plan and Environmental Investigation for Major Tributaries in the Cypress Creek Watershed,” Bond Project CI-035
  • An investigation of the potential benefit of expanding Cypress Park Stormwater Detention Basin, HCFCD Unit K500-01-00, Bond Project CI-36.

  • An investigation of the potential benefit of possible stormwater detention sites near Cypress Creek and Stuebner Airline Road, Bond Project CI-020

Project StaGE

This project is in the engineering investigation or FEASIBILITY STUDY stage. This stage will result in the identification of major general components of a plan to address an identified flooding issue. These components can then be considered in detail in the PRELIMINARY ENGINEERING stage.
