Clear Creek Flood Risk Management Project

Project Overview

The Clear Creek Project is a Flood Risk Management effort funded by the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018 (BBA18) with a capped Federal cost-share.  The Non-Federal Sponsor (NFS) is Harris County Flood Control District (HCFCD).

The Pre-engineering, Construction and Design (PED) Phase is being implemented by the NFS under a Section 1043b pilot program intended to expedite delivery of authorized projects. HCFCD leads design refinements and construction in compliance with all applicable Federal and State regulations.

Since HCFCD and USACE executed a Project Partnership Agreement of June 2019, HCFCD has verified current field conditions, refined designs and managed construction of Mud Gully. HCFCD provides Clear Creek project status at the following local site:
