Community engagement in reducing the risks from flooding is important.
Specifically, getting involved in this study can help the Corps and Harris County Flood Control District develop recommendations that are sensitive to your communities and effectively meet the project goals. We are committed to building your understanding of the engineering and design options considered to date, ensuring that accurate information is easily accessible, and that opportunities are available for your input. The potential outcome of this study may both add value to and affect aspects of communities in the study area.

The study team will provide updates through this website and through e-mail as the study continues. Check this website periodically and add your e-mail address to our mailing list by sending a request to BBTRS@usace.army.mil.
Additionally, we will post and notify you of public review and comment opportunities concurrent to the National Environmental Policy Act process.
At this phase of the study process, the alternatives and their features need to demonstrate that they will meet the engineering goals of the project, are technically feasible and cost effective, and are evaluated under the concurrent National Environmental Policy Act process. Should the recommendations from this study advance toward more detailed design, additional work will strive to balance these designs with the environment and community input.
