River Projections – 12/28

Dear Residents,

With recent heavy rains on Wednesday in the county and North of Houston, the Brazos River has given a new projection of just under 43ft by next Wednesday, January 2, 2019. Currently, the river has spiked to 31ft and continues to rise rapidly. All flood gates will begin to seal up over the weekend and the first part of next week. At 43ft, if reached, flood gates will be gravity sealed off everywhere throughout the county and will be on pumping operations should more rain be projected. At this time, forecasts are showing light rain over the weekend and into Monday. If rain does fall once gates are sealed, be on the look out for increased water levels in channels and detention ponds until pump stations can get levels back to normal. Street ponding while raining will be expected, based on rain intensity, as things progress and flow to the channels. LMS will be out and doing normal inspections over the weekend and into the first part of the week to insure no problems persist in any district.
