Federal Flood Risk Reduction Project – Clear Creek

The Clear Creek Federal Flood Damage Reduction Project is a partnership project between the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Harris County Flood Control District, Galveston County, and Brazoria Drainage District No. 4.  As of the June 2019 Project Partnership Agreement between the Corps and the Harris County Flood Control District, the Flood Control District is the lead agency for this project, under a non-federal implementation pilot program authorized by Section 1043(b) of the Water Resources Reform and Development Act (WRRDA) of 2014.

The portion of this project within the limits of Brazoria Drainage District No. 4 is Clear Creek between SH 288 and Dixie Farm Road and Mary’s Creek from Harkey Road to SH 35.

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.
