Construction Advisory for Major Maintenance of Cypress Creek and Tributaries

In an effort to keep you informed about the Harris County Flood Control District’s continuing improvements in the Cypress Creek watershed, we want to notify you of an upcoming project in your area. As early as July 2022, the Flood Control District will begin construction on the third set of repair sites (Batch 3) on tributaries in the Cypress Creek watershed. Batch 3 is part of a major repair project funded by the 2018 Flood Control District Bond Program, Bond ID CI-012. Batch 1 and 2 are currently under construction on other channels in the watershed.

Overall, this project is intended to provide major maintenance along Cypress Creek and its tributaries to restore channel conveyance capacity across the watershed. This work will not widen or deepen the channels but will return them to their designed condition and capacity so that they can convey stormwater more efficiently. The Batch 3 scope of work for 12 sites on 11 channel sections includes some or all of the following: Removal of silt, placement of buried riprap (rocks designed to protect from erosion), erosion repair, outfall pipe removal and replacement, manhole replacements, concrete channel lining replacements, excavation and off-site disposal, debris removal, encroachment removal, and site restoration. The project also includes outfall repairs at one existing stormwater detention basin.

Multiple crews will be working on various project sites simultaneously. The timeframe for when crews will be working at each site in Batch 3 has not been determined, but additional communications may be sent to impacted areas prior to construction.
