UPCOMING WORK: Major Maintenance of Cypress Creek & Tributaries
In June 2021, the Flood Control District will begin construction on the first set of project repair sites (Batch 1) of Bond Project CI-012, Major Maintenance of Cypress Creek and Tributaries to restore channel conveyance capacity across the watershed. Batch 1, located primarily between Spring-Cypress Road and Cypresswood Drive, inside the 77379 zip code area, includes removal of silt from the channel, placement of riprap (stones designed to protect from erosion), erosion repair, outfall pipe removal and replacement, manhole replacements, concrete channel lining replacements, excavation and off-site disposal, imported fill, and site restoration.
Bond Project CI-012 will be constructed in six to eight phases, called batches, of multiple individual project sites throughout the Cypress Creek watershed in need of repair. This work will not widen or deepen the channels, but will return them to their designed capacity to convey stormwater.
More information about this project, including details about planned batches and timelines can be found at hcfcd.org/CI-012. Residents with any comments or questions may contact the Flood Control District online through the project webpage, or by calling 346-286-4000.
