Overnight Construction Activity Delayed

Rescheduled: Sunday, August 9 beginning at 11:00 p.m.

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

Please be aware that major construction activity on the FBCLID 2 Third Pump Station will require overnight work hours. The pump station foundation concrete pour is delayed until Sunday, August 9 and is scheduled to begin at 11:00 p.m. The foundation is 3 feet deep, and the large pour will require over 200 truckloads of concrete. The foundation placement is a critical construction activity that requires continuous work until all the concrete is placed. Beginning at 11:00 p.m. on Sunday, August 9 work lights will be turned on and equipment will be staged around the site. On Monday, August 10 at 2:00 a.m. concrete trucks are scheduled to start arriving and are expected to run continuously until 4:00 p.m. The concrete finishing crews are scheduled to be complete by 8:00 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. FBCLID 2 appreciates your patience, particularly the residents of Austin Meadows, as the District works to complete this critical flood control project.

COVID-19 Update

COVID-19 Response

FBCLID 2 operators remain onsite and prepared to respond to flood or drainage emergencies during the COVID-19 outbreak.  The FBCLID 2 pump station, levees, and ditches continue to be routinely maintained and inspected.  Because these facilities provide crucial protection to the community, all operations personnel are considered essential workers.  The District’s emergency planning and operations over the past several years have resulted in cross training a large number of inspectors and operators.  FBCLID 2 has also invested in communication and network technology to operate and monitor all facilities remotely with limited in-person interaction. The FBCLID 2 Board of Directors has adopted emergency meeting procedures to provide business continuity for the District during the COVID-19 outbreak.  The March 18 meeting of the Board of Directors continued as scheduled, via teleconference.  Details about future public meetings will continue to be posted online at www.fbclid2.com .
