The Harris County Flood Control District in coordination with the Buffalo Bayou Partnership has begun completing major repairs along Buffalo Bayou, between Shepherd Drive to Sabine Street, to contain erosion and bank failures caused by Hurricane Harvey. While this work along Buffalo Bayou is not classified as a flood damage reduction project, the repairs are necessary to stabilize the channel and prevent further erosion and damage to the channel.
The total cost for these repairs will be approximately $9.7 million and will be funded by grants from the Natural Resources Conservation Service and Federal Emergency Management Agency. The project will be divided into seven separate phases along Buffalo Bayou designed to minimize disruption, while maintaining access to recreational amenities in the area. The project is expected to take approximately one year to complete.
Project updates can be found at www.buffalobayou.org and www.hcfcd.org/X068.
The Harris County Flood Control District provides flood damage reduction projects that work with appropriate regard for community and natural values. With more than 1,500 bayous and creeks totaling approximately 2,500 mi. in length, the Flood Control District accomplishes its mission by devising and implementing flood damage reduction plans and maintaining the infrastructure.
