Brazoria Drainage District No. 4 is scheduled to begin drainage reclamation and maintenance activities on the Country Place, The Lakes at Country Place, and Southdown drainage ditch in July 2019.
Project scope shall include, but is not limited to, Drainage Right of Way reclamation, outfall repairs, and maintenance of the drainage ditch adjacent to Country Place, The Lakes at Country Place, and Southdown subdivisions.
The initial phase of the project shall include drainage easement reclamation work consisting of the removal of trees, debris, and any encroachments upon the Drainage Right of Way. The Drainage Right of Way has been located by a professional land surveyor. The Drainage Right of Way will be cleared of any encroachment including structures, fence, plantings, and any other obstructions to the operation and maintenance of the drainage facility.
The drainage channel known as Country Place/Southdown Ditch extends from State Highway 288 east, then turning north to outfall into Clear Creek. The neighborhoods to the north and south of this ditch began construction in the early 1980s. The outfall pipes from those neighborhoods have needed repairs or replacement for several years. This project will first address those failing outfall pipes and structures from Country Place and Southdown, then will refocus to regrading of the channel.
