Harris County flood control project focuses on drainage ditches
The Harris County Flood Control District will soon launch a maintenance project to remove sediment from several area drainage ditches.
Work is already underway on a section of the Langham Creek tributary in Cy-Fair, which runs from Hudson Oaks Drive in Copperfield’s Westcreek Village subdivision to its confluence with Langham Creek southeast of the Westgate subdivision.
When that project is complete, work will start on the Barker Reservoir tributary in Katy. Sediment will be removed from the north end of the drainage ditch at Highland Knolls Drive to a point located 1,400 feet downstream of North Lake Village Drive in the Cinco Ranch North Lake Village subdivision.
In mid- to late November, work will start on two Dry Gully tributaries and one Little Cypress Creek tributary in northwest Harris County.
Sediment will then be removed from the Dry Gully tributary from Landry Drive in the Memorial Chase subdivision south to its confluence with Dry Gully, between Sunny Creek Drive in the Memorial Creek subdivision and Summer Point Drive in the Colony Creek Village subdivision. The ditch also flows through the Champion Springs Village subdivision.
The second Dry Gully ditch slated for maintenance flows between the Brentwood Lakes and Memorial Chase subdivisions parallel to Jan Glen Lane.
And sediment will also be removed from a section of the Little Cypress Creek tributary that runs between Grant and Louetta roads in the Fairwood subdivision.
