Moving the material is part of two projects funded by the Harris County Flood Control District 2018 bond: the final phase of the South Belt Stormwater Detention Basin and the Dagg Stormwater Detention Basin. Both basins were awarded a $16.9 million construction contract in January, according to a HCFCD press release. Both projects are expected to be completed in spring 2022, according to the release.
The Dagg Stormwater Detention Basin is located at Dagg Road near Christia V. Adair Park. The basin will hold stormwater and will feature floating islands, a first for the flood control district, according to the release.
