Emergency Operations Update June 5, 2019 – 10:00 AM

Fort Bend County Levee Improvement District No. 2 (FBCLID 2) is actively monitoring tropical activity that has moved into Sugar Land overnight. Rain is expected to continue throughout the day on Wednesday, June 5th. Currently 1.5 inches of rainfall has fallen inside the levee, with the potential for more rain throughout the day. The FBCLID 2 pump stations are operating normally to remove the water from inside the levee. Fortunately, the Brazos River and Ditch H are significantly lower than they were during the flooding experienced last month (May 2019). The water level outside the levee is 15 feet lower which allows the drainage system to function more efficiently if FBCLID 2 receives more intense rainfall. The Emergency Operations graphic describes the current status and water elevations for FBCLID2.

Emergency Operations Update June 4, 2019 – 10:00 AM

Fort Bend County Levee Improvement District No. 2 (FBCLID 2) is actively monitoring tropical activity in the Gulf of Mexico that is forecasted to impact Sugar Land overnight and throughout the day on Wednesday, June 5th.  Currently 4-6 inches of rainfall is forecasted through Thursday, June 6th.  The Emergency Operations graphic describes the current status and water elevations for FBCLID2.

The current Brazos River gage reading is approximately 35 feet and is forecasted to stay at that level through the weekend.  The water elevation in Ditch H created by the Brazos River will remain more than 15 feet below the bottom of the FBCLID2 levee.   However, this water level outside the levee can restrict the gravity drainage of rainfall inside the levee.  If FBCLID 2 does receive heavy rainfall the internal drainage ditches have been pumped down to maximize storage capacity.  Also, the Bill Little and Mike Thelen Pump Stations are both fully operational and staffed.
