Z100-00-00-X293 - Addicks Reservoir Watershed

Z100-00-00-X293 is a collection of major maintenance projects that will repair various types of channel failures along 6 different project areas within the Addicks Reservoir watershed. Portions of the identified channels are considered to be in serious failure and these repairs are necessary to prevent further impact to the channels.

Projects included as part of Z100-00-00-X293 are NOT classified as flood damage reduction projects; however, the channel may be widened in some locations in order to restore the channel conveyance capacity back to how the channel was originally designed.

Projects that fall under Z100-00-00-X293 include:

  • U100-00-00-X036 - consists of erosion repair, removal and disposal of sediment accumulations, granular fill and riprap installation, pipe removal and replacement, beginning approximately 2,000 linear feet downstream of Barker Cypress Road and ending at Barker Cypress Road.
  • U100-00-00-X048 - consists of erosion repair, removal and disposal of sediment accumulations, granular fill and riprap installation, pipe removal and replacement, concrete slope removal and replacement, beginning approximately 1,200 linear feet upstream of Queenston Boulevard and ending approximately 1,000 linear feet downstream of Queenston Boulevard. 
  • U116-00-00-X004 - consists of erosion repair, removal and disposal of sediment accumulations, granular fill and riprap installation, pipe removal and replacement, beginning approximately 3,400 linear feet upstream of West Little York Road and ending at 3,900 linear feet upstream of West Little York Road. 
  • U118-00-00-X006 - consists of erosion repair, removal and disposal of sediment accumulations, granular fill and riprap installation, concrete slope removal and replacement, beginning approximately 100 linear feet downstream of FM 529 and ending approximately 300 linear feet downstream of FM 529. 
  • U119-00-00-X004 - consists of erosion repair, pipe removal and replacement, located approximately 550 linear feet downstream of FM 529.
  • U120-00-00-X016 - consists of erosion repair, removal and disposal of sediment accumulations, granular fill and riprap installation, pipe removal and replacement, beginning approximately 800 linear feet downstream of Barker Cypress Road and ending approximately 5,300 linear feet upstream of Barker Cypress Road.

The total cost for these channel repairs is expected to be approximately $6.4M and will be funded using grants from the Natural Resources Conservation Service and Federal Emergency Management Agency.

There will be heavy machinery near project sites and substantial vegetation removal operations may be needed in order to properly prepare the site for construction. For public safety reasons, trail users can expect intermittent closures as the projects progress. Please pay attention to posted signage in the project areas.

Anticipated completion for all sites is Summer 2020 depending on weather.
