Background and Discussion:

 

 This project is located in Greens Bayou watershed near Highway 90 and Beltway 8. The Beaumont Place subdivision consists of mainly roadside ditches and has been subjected to several flooding events with the most recent being Hurricane Harvey (August 2017) and the Tax Day Flood (April 2016). Drainage analysis of the subdivision began in late 2019 as a part of the 2018 Bond program for subdivision drainage improvements. The scope and proposed improvements include roadside ditch regrading, driveway culvert upgrades, expansion of channel along Big Gulch, concrete lined Sulphur Gully channel with reinforced concrete box (RCB) crossing improvements. Improvements also include multiple detention ponds along Big Gulch with an extreme event overflow swale towards the upstream portion of the channel.

 

 

Expected Impact:

 

 By adding to the existing contract, this project seeks to reduce flood risk and strengthen resiliency in Harris County by assisting in the alleviation of structural flood damage to 196 homes in the community. This modification is a step in the process to reduce the financial, physical, and emotional burden flood damage places on homeowners and will reduce the financial impact of recovery costs to the Beaumont Place subdivision homeowners, Harris County, and FEMA.

 

 

 

Alternative Options:

Alternative options include choosing not to perform the additional engineering for the design and construction of reinforced concrete boxes along Flagstaff, or to propose an alternate solution in a different location.
