Meyergrove Stormwater Detention Basin… tomorrow night!

The Harris County Flood Control District will hold a virtual Community Engagement Meeting in advance of the start of construction this Fall on the Meyergrove Stormwater Detention Basin located in the Brays Bayou watershed. The purpose of this meeting is to inform residents about the project’s status, share project information, and gather important community input on this effort.

The Meyergrove Stormwater Detention Basin project aims to reduce the impact of flooding throughout the watershed by constructing two stormwater detention basins. The first stormwater detention basin (D500-11-00) will be located just inside Loop 610 between Brays Bayou and North Braeswood Boulevard and the second basin (D500-12-00) will be located in the median between North and South Braeswood and between the railroad crossing and Linkwood Drive. This project is funded through the 2018 Bond Program, which was approved by Harris County voters on August 25, 2018. Community engagement is a foundational component of the Bond Program, and we invite your participation and input as projects are implemented.
The Virtual Community Engagement Meeting will be held on:
Thursday, August 17, 2023
6:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
Join online at: Meyergrove Stormwater Detention Basin – PublicInput

The meeting will begin with a brief presentation to share project updates, followed by a moderated Q&A session with Flood Control District team members. Residents will be able to submit questions and comments before, during and after the meeting and throughout the public comment period. Any comments not addressed during the Q&A session will receive a response at the conclusion of the public comment period.
