Spring Creek Flood Control Dams Feasibility Study Public Meeting No. 1

Spring Creek Flood Control Dams  Feasibility Study  Public Meeting No. 1

The San Jacinto River Authority (SJRA) will hold a public meeting to discuss the Spring Creek Flood Control Dams Feasibility Study (the "Project").

The Project is a continuation of the Spring Creek Siting Study, a sub-task of the San Jacinto Regional Watershed Master Drainage Plan project (SJMDP) led by Harris County Flood Control District (HCFCD) and supported by multiple partner agencies including the San Jacinto River Authority (SJRA). The Spring Creek Siting Study explored multiple alternative projects and detention siting locations to provide flood mitigation benefits to the Spring Creek watershed. Two of the more cost-effective alternatives identified by the SJMDP are dams on Walnut Creek and Birch Creek. The Spring Creek Flood Control Dams Feasibility Study will include a conceptual-level design for each of the two dams, as well as definition of benefits and costs for each dam and a combination of the two dams. The outcome of this study will allow project sponsors to determine the most feasible and economical alternative(s) for possible future design and construction. The Project is being funded by the Texas Water Development Board (TWDB), Harris County Flood Control District, City of Humble, and five (5) Municipal Utility Districts, with in-kind services being provided by SJRA.
