The Harris County Engineering Department will host a meeting Jan. 30 to solicit feedback on drainage improvements being proposed at three Cy-Fair communities: Barwood, Tower Oaks Meadows and Bernadine Estates. The meeting is scheduled for 6-8 p.m. at Arnold Middle School, 11111 Telge Road, Cypress.
The drainage improvements are part of a broader flood mitigation plan proposed by Harris County in 2018 and funded through a $2.5 billion bond referendum that was approved by voters last August. Drainage systems vary by community but typically include underground storm sewer systems or roadside ditches designed to carry stormwater from neighborhoods to nearby bayous.
A total of 104 subdivisions were identified in the bond for drainage improvements. Other Cy-Fair neighborhoods slated for improvements include Wortham Estates, Tower Oaks Plaza, Cypress Crossing Mobile Home Park, Ravensway, Westgate, Cypress Creek Estates and Timberlake Estates. Public feedback meetings for those neighborhoods will be scheduled as they are authorized by the Harris County Commissioners Court.
Correction: An earlier version of this story stated the meeting will be hosted by the Harris County Flood Control District. The meetings and drainage projects will be coordinated by the Harris County Engineering Department.
