Survey Work – Mary’s Creek

Due to devastating flooding from Hurricane Harvey and other events in the recent past, Brazoria Drainage District No. 4 in coordination with United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) will begin planning for channel improvements along Mary’s Creek from Harkey Road to SH 35. The first phase of the process will include Topographic Survey in the field. Once this phase is complete, the plans will be designed and constructed. This project is necessary to improve the drainage in the channel and improve the conveyance of storm water during future flood events. In cooperation with the USACE, this phase will begin Tuesday, November 6th until all work has been completed.

Please contact Brazoria Drainage District No. 4 with any questions.
