P-133-000-000 Drainage Facility Erosion Control Projects
In an effort to protect the lives and property of residents in Harris County Water Control and Improvement District No. 96, the District has initiated several erosion control projects along the P-133-000-000 Drainage Facility, identified in red below. Recently upstream development combined with heavy rains has increased the rate of embankment erosion along certain parts of P-133. After much consideration and in consultation with the Harris County Flood Control District and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the District decided to undertake several projects to reduce and impede erosion occurring along P-133.
Over the next two years, residents adjacent to P-133 will observe various erosion control projects targeted at maintaining the Mesa Road bridge and reducing embankment erosion along P-133 south of Mesa Road. The various locations of these projects are identified in the graphic below. Project activity will occur over time in several phases. The first project began June 2, 2016, and should conclude at the end of August, provided there are no delays. Regrettably, the erosion control projects will result in the removal and clearing of some trees and underbrush along P-133.
The District requests patience as it proceeds with these erosion control projects and apologizes for any inconvenience the construction activity may cause. To reduce any disturbance the construction may cause residents, the District has asked contractors to limit their hours of operation to 7 a.m. through 7 p.m., Monday through Friday. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the erosion control projects, please contact Sanford Kuhl Hagan Kugle Parker Kahn LLP at 713-850-9000.
