Communities in the Bay Area will host several meetings in late February and early March about Phase 1 of the Lower Clear Creek and Dickinson Bayou Watershed Study.

The Dickinson Bayou Watershed meeting will be held 6 to 8 p.m. on Feb. 26 at Walter Hall Park, 807 N. Hwy. 3, League City.

The Lower Clear Creek Watershed meetings will be held 6 to 8 p.m. March 3 at the Bay Area Community Center, 5002 NASA Parkway, Seabrook; March 4 at Friendswood Junior High School, 1001 Mansion Parkway, Friendswood; and March 5 at the League City Civic Center, 400 W. Walker St., League City, according to a public notice.

At the meetings, plans to mitigate flooding in both watersheds will be presented, and residents will be able to provide feedback on which alternatives they prefer. Informational displays will be set up for residents to view, and study team representatives will provide information and answer questions. No formal presentations will be made, according to the notice.

In August 2017, Hurricane Harvey hit Galveston, Harris and Brazoria counties, and Clear Creek and Dickinson Bayou flooded severely. The purpose of the study is to develop a comprehensive flood-mitigation plan, identify vulnerabilities and reduce flood risks for both watersheds, the release reads.

Representatives will accept public comments at the meetings and throughout the duration of the study. Residents who want to comment on Phase 1 of the study should do so by March 20 to be considered in Phase 2. Comments can be emailed to [email protected] or mailed to the Lower Clear Creek and Dickinson Bayou Watershed Study Community Engagement Team at 2500 Summer St., Ste. 1130, Houston, Texas 77007, per the notice.
