Project Status as of August 2022

The consultant provided a hydrologic and hydraulic model and study for the watershed using the Houston-Galveston Area Council (H-GAC) aerial topographic information provided by the Texas Natural Resources Information System (TNRIS) and field observations. A drainage area map for Magnolia Creek and Cedar Gully Channel was also provided showing the watershed and sub-basin delineation in an effort to provide the best recommendation for adequate drainage flow. The United States Army Corps of Engineers published the Magnolia Creek Individual Permit public notice in early July. The City is expecting to receive an update by mid-August from the consultant on the USACE’s response.
