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
