Flood control district to start drainage study in Huffman next month

November 19, 2018

Huffman will start seeing some funds from the $2.5 billion flood mitigation bond being put to use in a drainage analysis starting mid-December.

On Tuesday the Harris County Commissioners Court approved Edminster, Hinshaw, Russ & Associates (EHRA) to provide a comprehensive drainage improvement analysis in the amount of $400,000 in the Huffman area for water bodies that drain into the San Jacinto River, Luce Bayou and Cedar Bayou.

There will be a $10,000 local match.

This project could help reduce the risk of flooding and facilitate drainage improvements in the Huffman area’s local watersheds.

The Harris County Flood Control District officials said they will be managing this project. The study area corresponds to the Huffman Independent School District boundary.

HCFCD officials said this study will take about months and depending on the outcome an additional or more in-depth analysis may be needed.
