Harris County Flood Control Information – 2019 Updates – The Brays Watershed

I’ll try to keep everyone up to date on the actions of the Harris County Flood Control District actions that affect Bellaire and Southwest Houston – the Brays Bayou Watershed. Based on the list of stakeholders the only organization in our area of Brays Bayou is the Brays Bayou Association based in the Meyerland area.  Please send me information on other articles via the contact link, upper right on the Menu.

Most information will be via links to other websites, that’s the simplest way to provide the updates.  The most recent will be at the top of the list.

Between June 5 and August 1, 2018, the Harris County Flood Control District hosted 23 Community Engagement Meetings in each of Harris County’s 22 watersheds (plus Halls Bayou, a tributary of Greens Bayou), to gather public input and ideas, and to answer questions about the 2018 Harris County Flood Control District Bond Program.

Now that the bonds have passed, opportunities for further community engagement will be available for each project.

As part of the preliminary engineering process conducted near the beginning of each project’s development stage, and prior to a formal Preliminary Engineering Report being presented to Commissioners Court for approval, the Flood Control District will conduct a public meeting in a primary project watershed to solicit public comments about the project.
