League City Flood Risk Management Project

Project Overview

In August 2017, Hurricane Harvey struck the Texas coast, bringing a historic amount of rainfall to the Houston region. The storm produced never-before-seen precipitation depths in Galveston, Harris, and Brazoria Counties. As was the case with most of the watersheds in the region, Clear Creek experienced widespread flooding, which resulted in significant flood damages in the region.

This flooding poses risks to human health and safety as well as risk of damaging public and private properties, local infrastructure, and public utilities. The Section 205 Flood Risk Management feasibility study is the first phase of the multi-phased Corps of Engineers project process that will identify alternatives that could mitigate the flood risk to human health, safety, damage to public and private properties, local infrastructure, and public utilities in League City near FM 270.

The objectives of the project are to: 

  • Assess existing and potential flood risk 
  • Evaluate structural and nonstructural flood risk management strategies considering flood risk, economic, social, and environmental impacts 
  • Recommend an actionable alternative 
  • Prepare Environmental Assessment and NEPA documentation 
  • Deliver a Detailed Project Report
