Emergency Operations Update – May 3, 2024

Over the past week the Brazos River has risen approximately 20 feet and is forecasted to crest at 42.5 feet on Wednesday, May 8. At this level, the FBCLID 2 flood gates will close, but restricted gravity drainage through the flood gates is still possible. Fortunately, the rain forecast over the next seven days is less than 0.5 inches. The District is actively monitoring conditions and is prepared to respond if the forecast changes. The pump stations have been tested and operators are on stand-by if needed.

Third Pump Station Construction Update: Overnight Construction Activity – December 30, 2020

Flintco Industrial continues to make progress on construction of the Third Pump Station. The intake structure and outfall for the pump station are essentially complete. The foundation and walls for the pump bays are also complete. The last major concrete pour on the project is placement of the top deck that is suspended over the pump bays. This critical activity is currently scheduled for Wednesday, December 30. The top deck pour will require additional work hours, so the contractor will arrive onsite by 2:00 a.m. At 4:00 a.m. concrete trucks will start arriving and are expected to run continuously until 1:00 p.m. The concrete finishing crews will be complete by 4:00 p.m. and evening work hours will not be required. 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. A follow-up notification will be distributed the week prior when all dates and times are confirmed.

The Third Pump Station is still scheduled to be in operation by Spring 2021, before the start of Hurricane Season. FBCLID 2 appreciates your patience, particularly the residents of Austin Meadows, as the District works to complete this critical flood control project.
