title

Request for approval of a new unit designated as C157-00-00 to be accepted as part of the Harris County Flood Control District’s maintenance system, which is a channel system constructed by the City of Houston and coordinated by the Channel Ownership Program. (Sims Bayou Watershed, Project ID Z100-00-00-R007, Precinct 1).

Background and Discussion:

The Flood Control District’s Channel Ownership Program team has coordinated with the City of Houston to accept the identified segment(s) of an open channel that was constructed and maintained by the City of Houston. The goal of the Channel Ownership Program has been to identify drainage infrastructure in the county that would be better serviced by the Flood Control District Infrastructure Department and to add these areas to the Flood Control District cyclical mowing schedule. This channel reach is located within the Sims Bayou watershed.

 

Expected Impact:

The impact on Flood Control District will be the addition of maintenance responsibility for the identified channel. However, this channel reach will be better serviced since it will be consistently maintained and monitored by the Flood Control District’s Infrastructure Department and their mowing contractors.

 

Alternative Options:

The only alternative would be to take no action. However, this would be detrimental, in the long term, as the Flood Control District is better equipped to maintain open channels compared to the City of Houston.

 

Alignment with Goal(s):

_ Justice and Safety

_ Economic Opportunity

_ Housing

_ Public Health

_ Transportation

X Flooding

_ Environment

_ Governance and Customer Service
