Updated Dates for Rehabilitation and Additional Detention Projects

Ditch B Project

This project consists of excavation of additional detention in the pond adjacent to Sheffield Dr. in Lexington Colony and to address some channel erosion issues in the pilot channel.

The excavated material will be hauled to the east levee to raise that segment of levee approximately 2 feet.

Wet conditions have slowed the contractor down early in this project. There have also been some unforeseen field conditions that have caused delays to the project.

Contractor: Texas Dewatering. Projected completion date is November 24, 2021.

Pond A-2 and Ditch A-3

This project consists of excavation of additional detention in the smaller of the two lakes behind the Heritage Colony Rec Center and in the dry detention pond adjacent to Heritage Colony.

The excavated material will be used to raise the south levee approximately 2 feet. The project will also include addressing some lake edge erosion issues on the smaller lake and adding some concrete paving at the outfall structure to facilitate better maintenance access.

A pre-construction meeting is being coordinated with Missouri City. Rally Construction is planning to start construction the first week of November.

Contractor: Texas Rally Construction. Projected completion date is January 17, 2022.

Tropical Storm Nicholas Update

7:00 AM

As of this time, the Brazos River is predicted to stay well below critical levels, (Gauge 45 at Richmond) throughout this event, therefore normal drainage for areas south of SH 6 should not be influenced by river levels.  For areas north of SH 6, Oyster Creek may experience levels higher than normal as local rainfall amounts accumulate.

For all areas within the district, local rainfall may cause street ponding, but can be expected to drain off after rainfall stops.  Use caution when driving near ponded water.  Do not attempt to drive through ponded water above curb height.  Exercise usual preparatory measures, such as stocking water, non-perishable food and medications, and securing loose outdoor items.

Please monitor weather updates/alerts and Fort Bend County Homeland Security and Emergency Management (OEM).

Residents should also monitor their respective city websites and news releases (City of Sugar Land OEM or Missouri City OEM) for safety advisories or evacuation notices, as the situation can change rapidly.
