Harris County Flood Control District Meeting re Cypress Creek

Community Engagement Meetings for the Cypress Creek Watershed

Regional Drainage Plan and Environmental Investigation for Major Tributaries in the Cypress Creek
Watershed HCFCD Unit K100-00-00-P005 – Bond Project CI-035

Major Maintenance of Cypress Creek and Tributaries HCFCD Unit K100-00-00-G002 – Bond Project CI-012

The Harris County Flood Control District will hold two identical Community Engagement Meetings in
the Cypress Creek watershed. The purpose of these meetings is to inform residents about the status
of projects and share project information.

Bond Project CI-035, “Regional Drainage Plan and Environmental Investigation for Major Tributaries
in the Cypress Creek Watershed” is an update to the 2003 Texas Water Development Board plan by the
same name. The goal of the update is to identify projects to reduce or eliminate existing flooding
risks within the Cypress Creek watershed. The results and recommendations, including additional
stormwater detention basins, will be presented for discussion.

Bond Project CI-012 “Major Maintenance of Cypress Creek and Tributaries” involves major maintenance
along Cypress Creek and its tributaries to restore channel conveyance capacity. It may include
right-of-way acquisition, design and construction along tributaries. Maintenance projects do not
involve widening or deepening a channel. The goal is to repair and restore the channel to its
original condition so that it can effectively convey stormwater.

Both projects will be funded with bonds approved by Harris County voters on August 25, 2018.
Community engagement is an important component of the Bond Program, and we invite your
participation as the program is implemented.

The Community Engagement Meetings will be held in an open-house format and area residents can
attend any time between 6:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. An overview presentation will replay every 10-15
minutes throughout the two-hour period to accommodate more people. Participants can visit a variety
of informational stations in the open house area and discuss the projects individually with
representatives from the Harris County Flood Control District and their partners.
