The Harris County Flood Control District will hold two identical Community Engagement Meetings in the Cypress Creek watershed. The purpose of these meetings is to inform residents about the status of projects and share project information.
Community Engagement Meetings for the Cypress Creek Watershed
Regional Drainage Plan and Environmental Investigation for
Major Tributaries in the Cypress Creek Watershed
HCFCD Unit K100-00-00-P005 – Bond Project CI-035
Major Maintenance of Cypress Creek and Tributaries
HCFCD Unit K100-00-00-G002 – Bond Project CI-012
Bond Project CI-035, “Regional Drainage Plan and Environmental Investigation for Major Tributaries in the Cypress Creek Watershed” is an update to the 2003 Texas Water Development Board plan by the same name. The goal of the update is to identify projects to reduce or eliminate existing flooding risks within the Cypress Creek watershed. The results and recommendations, including additional stormwater detention basins, will be presented for discussion.
Bond Project CI-012 “Major Maintenance of Cypress Creek and Tributaries” involves major maintenance along Cypress Creek and its tributaries to restore channel conveyance capacity. It may include right-of-way acquisition, design and construction along tributaries. Maintenance projects do not involve widening or deepening a channel. The goal is to repair and restore the channel to its original condition so that it can effectively convey stormwater.
Both projects will be funded with bonds approved by Harris County voters on August 25, 2018. Community engagement is an important component of the Bond Program, and we invite your participation as the program is implemented.
