Country Place Ditch

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.

This project is scheduled to start in July 2019

Government Ditch

This is an inter-local project with Brazoria County to clean out and improve approximately 2.3 miles of a drainage ditch extending from FM 1462 in Rosharon, south to County Road 655 on the Ramsey and Jester state farm property.  This ditch is located in an area that does not currently have Drainage District representation.

This job is currently in progress with an estimated completion in 2019.

Springfield Ditch

Springfield Ditch & Park Village Detention Pond

The detention facilities for the neighborhoods of Springfield and Park Village have been plagued with drainage difficulties for many years.  In an effort to more effectively drain these facilities, the District engineered and has nearly completed a project that combined the two detention ponds with the drainage channel that was located between the ponds.  This design addressed the drainage concerns, replaced failing outfall pipes, and simplified the maintenance burden in perpetuity.

This project is near completion with only hydro-mulch grass seeding left to finish.



Clear Creek Reclamation Project

This project’s scope is to remove approximately 90,000 yards of dirt from the Clear Creek channel creating a bench just above the static water level, thus creating additional detention within the banks of the channel.  This project continues and connects with a job completed last year just upstream that commenced one quarter mile south of the Barry Rose bridge.  The previous job was approximately one quarter mile in length, the current project is approximately one half mile in length.

This job is part of an ongoing reclamation project for Clear Creek.


Masonic Lodge Ditch

The Brazoria Drainage District No. 4 is scheduled to begin drainage reclamation and maintenance activities on the Willowick drainage ditch and detention system in June 2019.

Project scope shall include, but is not limited to, ditch reclamation, concrete box culvert installation, and maintenance of the drainage ditch adjacent to Willowick subdivision. Included in this work is the reclamation of the drainage easement within the Willowick subdivision for maintenance access.

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 easement. The drainage easement has been located and marked by a professional land surveyor. The drainage easement will be cleared of any encroachment including structures, fence, plantings, and any other obstructions to the operation and maintenance of the drainage facility. Property owners with identified encroachments will receive with this correspondence an exhibit reflecting the area of encroachment that will need to be remedied.

The Masonic Lodge Ditch job is a channel improvement project to restore 2,500 feet of open ditch from the rear of the CF Spencer Masonic Lodge on Walnut St. at the north and extending south to the recently completed Fite Rd. extension.  The installation of the box culvert storm sewer beneath the Fite Rd. extension made possible the improvements that this ditch has needed for some time.  The project scope includes the regrading of approximately 2,100 linear feet of open ditch, installation of 300 feet of concrete box culvert, and the replacement of failing outfall pipes from the Willowick subdivision.

This project is scheduled to start in early July 2019 and is expected to be completed in September 2019

Mary’s Creek @ Independence Park

Due to devastating damage from Hurricane Harvey the Brazoria Drainage District No. 4 began channel  improvements on Mary’s Creek in the Independence Park area. The first phase of improvements were from John Lizer Road to Liberty Drive near the old park entrance.

Once this section is complete work will continue on to other sections of the Creek. This project is necessary to stabilize the severely eroded banks of the channel and improve the conveyance of storm water during future flood events. In cooperation with the City of Pearland the parking area and walk trail North of the park entrance will be temporarily closed starting Monday, February 12th 2018 until all improvements have been completed.
