Flood Control District Infrastructure and Community Services Divisions step up Tornado Debris clean up

As many Harris County residents heard and felt the impact of the January 24 storm system that swept through the Houston area, causing a tornado to touchdown in east Harris County, the Harris County Flood Control District's Infrastructure, Maintenance Engineering and Community Service divisions suited-up in the storm’s wake to conduct damage assessments and perform clean-up activities.

The Work Continues

Construction continues on the Smith Road Channel Diversion Project in Northeast Harris County.  The project will reduce the potential for future erosion along Greens Bayou Tributary P133-00-00 to improve the drainage along Smith Road and also benefit the Fall Creek subdivision. The less erosion, the greater the stormwater conveyance capacity of the tributary to reduce the risk of flooding for structures in the area.
