August 16, 2012 Public Meeting

At the beginning of the Cypress Creek Overflow Management Plan study effort, the Harris County Flood Control District held a public meeting on August 16, 2012 to inform the public about the primary goals of the study, which were:

  • To develop a consensus plan to manage flood risks in the area that experiences overflows from the upper Cypress Creek watershed into the Addicks Reservoir watershed.
  • To establish a set of policies, technical criteria and guidelines that would allow the Flood Control District to plan for and implement programs that reduce flood risks that reflect the unique hydrologic conditions in upper Cypress Creek (upstream of US 290) and the drainage areas upstream of Addicks and Barker reservoirs, including Langham Creek, Bear Creek and South Mayde Creek.
