The Harris County Flood Control District will begin rehabilitation this winter on tributaries upstream of the Barker Reservoir, according to a district press release.

Barker Repair Package 1 will address erosion and slope failures along Mason Creek and a tributary of the Upper Buffalo Bayou. The work will also include repairs to concrete structures and address outfall failures. This is one of multiple projects that the HCFCD is undertaking to evaluate and repair several channel segments that flow into the Barker Reservoir.

Construction is expected to begin this winter and anticipated to finish in spring 2024. The district has a $6.5 million contract with Environmental Allies, which is funded by the 2018 bond program. Residents in the neighborhoods surrounding the tributaries will see construction-related vehicles and are urged to respect all warning signs.
