Please pardon our appearance during construction. Work continues on schedule for the Fort Bend County Levee Improvement District No. 2 (FBCLID 2) Third Pump Station. The pile driving that began in January is now complete. The contractor is currently excavating the large hole needed to install the new pumps. The excavation will be approximately forty feet deep and requires several thousand dump truck trips down Oakland Drive and Elkins Road. It will take several months to complete all the required excavation. Please excuse the dust and remain aware of construction traffic as FBCLID 2 completes this essential flood control project.
Regulations require the Third Pump Station contractor to implement a variety of “best management practices” to keep the streets and storm sewers clean. These activities include maintaining stabilized construction entrances, protecting storm sewer inlets, and routine street cleaning. The contractor keeps a street sweeper onsite at all times and has a crew with shovels and wheelbarrows for spot cleaning. FBCLID 2 is closely monitoring this issue and will continue to communicate with the City of Sugar Land throughout the project.
The Third Pump Station is still on schedule to be complete and operational by Spring 2021. Additional construction details are available online: www.fbclid2.com/third-pump-station-construction/. Please contact FBCLID 2 directly with any questions or concerns: www.fbclid2.com/contact.
