Update on HCFCD Improvement of Storm Water Flow from the Brunswick Meadows Pond

During the Beta Storm, the District experienced street flooding in some areas and ponds that would not recede for a number of days in others. We requested cleaning of the outfall channels surrounding the District to mitigate these occurrences.

According to an update on 2/23/21 from Myron Jones of the Harris County Flood Control Department (HCFCD): in-house crews are mobilizing onsite today at the A136-00-00 channel. They will be desilting the channel from Beltway 8 all the way down to Clear Creek A100-00-00.

The work will begin possibly today or tomorrow and should take up to a couple of weeks to complete weather permitting. Our thanks to Myron and Flood Control for following up.
