Background and Discussion:
The Lynwood Estates Subdivision is located in Precinct 3, north of Beltway 8 and west of Hardy Service Rd. The project will improve the existing public drainage system in order to reduce ponding during the 2-year, 10-year, and 100-year storm events. The improvements include upsizing existing inlets, installing storm sewers and, upsizing the system's outfall to reinforced concrete boxes, and adding a detention pond to avoid adverse impacts to the receiving waterways.

Expected Impact:
This project seeks to reduce flood risk and strengthen resiliency in Harris County by assisting in the alleviation of structural flood damage to homes in the community. This contractor award 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 Lynwood Estates 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. No impact to project schedule or staffing anticipated.
