Background and Discussion:
This project is located in northwest Harris County in the Cypress Creek watershed. Tall Pines Addition consists of an open roadside drainage ditch system that drains through 4 outfalls into an existing HCFCD Channel K154-00-00 and eventually drains to Cypress Creek. The scope approved on Commissioners Court (January 7, 2020) consisted of re-evaluating the recommendations made during the planning study of this project. Ultimately it was recommended to replace and upsize the driveway culverts where required and regrade the roadside ditches to improve the drainage for localized flooding events in the neighborhood.

Expected Impact:
Once the construction is completed, there will be reduction in flood risk for the Tall Pines neighborhood. This project will be 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 Tall Pines Addition subdivision homeowners, Harris County, and FEMA. The fiscal impact for this project will come from the 1080 Fund, Special Mobility Funding for the Recovery and Resiliency Division subdivision projects with the long-term goal of reducing drainage costs in the future.
