Tropical Storm Beta

Fort Bend County Levee Improvement District No. 2 (FBCLID 2) is actively monitoring Tropical Storm Beta in the Gulf of Mexico. The FBCLID 2 pump stations have been tested and operators are on stand-by to run the pumps, if needed. Fortunately, the Brazos River and Ditch H are at low levels that do not impact drainage inside the FBCLID 2 levee.

The latest forecast and information from the National Weather Service is included below. FBCLID 2 is included in the Tropical Storm Warning with a 50-60% probability of Tropical Storm Force winds (39+ MPH), and 6-10 of rain is possible over the next 5 days.

Early Morning Construction Activity: Tuesday, September 15

FBCLID 2 Third Pump Station
2602 Oakland Drive
Sugar Land, TX 77479

Please be aware that construction activity on the FBCLID 2 Third Pump Station will require early morning work hours.  The contractor is scheduled to place concrete for the outfall channel foundation and a portion of the pump station walls.  Concrete trucks are scheduled to start arriving at 5:00 a.m. and are expected to run continuously until 1:00 p.m.

The contractor will stage concrete trucks on Elkins Road, in front of Clements High School, to limit parking on Oakland Drive inside the neighborhood.  Please remain aware of construction activity during this time. If possible, limiting street parking on Oakland Drive will provide more room for all drivers.

The pump station foundation was poured in early August, and now construction has started on the walls that will support the new pumps.  At the same time, the contractor has also started working on the foundation of the outfall channel where the pumps will release the water.  FBCLID 2 appreciates your patience, particularly the residents of Austin Meadows, as the District works to complete this critical flood control project.  The pump station is scheduled to be in operation by Spring 2021.
