C-35 Design and Construction of Stormwater Detention Basin and Associated Channel Improvements

Excavation of Stormwater Detention Basins P518-10-00 and P518-14-00

Channel Conveyance Improvements on Halls Bayou Tributary P118-14-00

Project Description

This project involves several components to improve the conveyance of stormwater and to reduce flooding risks in this area:

  • Excavation of Little York Stormwater Detention Basin, HCFCD Unit P518-10-00
  • Excavation of Hopper Stormwater Detention Basin, HCFCD Unit P518-14-00
  • And related channel conveyance improvements to Tributary P118-14-00

Stormwater detention basins reduce flooding risks and damages during heavy rain events by safely storing excess stormwater and slowly releasing it back to the bayou when the threat of flooding has passed.


This project is located east of U.S. 59 and north of Halls Bayou along Tributary P118-14-00, from just north of Langley Road to just north of Hopper Road.

Project Stage

This project is in the DESIGN stage. This stage of the project will result in engineering documents and a bid-ready project manual necessary to take the chosen project into the bidding process and to the CONSTRUCTION stage.

Bond Project C-35 is a potential “Partnership” project. The Flood Control District has applied for a Community Development Block Grant-DR grant in connection with this project. Total allocation for this project is currently $7 million, of which approximately $6.2 million would be partnership funding, if granted, and $800,000 would be local costs. If partnership funds are not available, the project would be funded totally from the 2018 Bond Program as a “Local Only” project.

Additional project elements, including the P518-14-01 stormwater detention basin, were added in 2017 to an existing project to design the P518-10-00 stormwater detention basin as well as channel conveyance improvements to Tributary P118-14-00.


A Community Engagement Meeting for this project was held on Wednesday, September 18, 2019, from 6-8 p.m. at North East Community Center, 10918 Bentley Street, Houston, Texas 77093.
