Harris County Flood Control District announces project in Jersey Village
The Harris County Flood Control District announced that a maintenance project is set to begin in March in Jersey Village.
According to the press release, "The Harris County Flood Control District will begin construction in March 2013 on a maintenance project along a channel in Jersey Village. The project will span the channel formally identified as HCFCD Unit E127-00-00 from its confluence with White Oak Bayou upstream approximately 900 feet to Senate Avenue. The project will repair erosion and replace damaged outfall pipes along E127-00-00 and install a drop structure at the confluence of White Oak Bayou and E127-00-00. A drop structure helps prevent erosion by controlling the energy and velocity of water passing through the channel. The overall goal of the project is to restore the channels stability and improve its ability to convey stormwater. The project will also replace damaged concrete slope paving along White Oak Bayou.
"An approximately $432,000 contract has been awarded to N&Z Contracting Inc. for the maintenance project. Construction is expected to take about 60 working days, weather and schedule permitting."
