In preparation for the 2021 hurricane season, six new flood gauges were placed in League City this week.

Three of the six gauges are in the Clear Creek watershed, and three are in the Dickinson Bayou watershed, according to a May 10 League City news briefing. All gauges were installed and should be added to the Harris County Flood Warning System website May 14, League City officials said via email.

Hurricane season will start June 1 and end Nov. 30. These new flood gauges will help monitor rainfall and stream levels in specific areas during heavy-rainfall events.

The gauges are at the following locations:

  • Bay Area Boulevard at Magnolia Creek

  • FM 518 at Landing Ditch (near to Landing Blvd)

  • Borden Gully Drive/Hughes Lane at Borden Gully

  • FM 646 at Benson Bayou

  • Egret Bay Boulevard at Clear Creek

  • FM 646 at Gum Bayou

More specifics on the location of each gauge can be found here. Data from the gauges will be published on so residents can track water levels during periods of high rainfall.
