Emergency Operations Update – May 7, 2019 at 8:00 AM

The attached graphic describes the current status of Emergency Operations for Fort Bend County Levee Improvement District No. 2 (FBCLID2). The Brazos River is forecasted to crest on Friday, May 10th near FBCLID2, located in Sugar Land, Texas. The water elevation in Ditch H created by the Brazos River will remain 3 feet below the bottom of the FBCLID2 levee. The floodgates that protect FBCLID2 are closed. If additional rain falls inside the levee while the flood gates are closed, the internal drainage channels have been pumped down to maximize storage capacity. The William “Bill” Little and Michael “Mike” Thelen Pump Stations are both fully operational and on standby in case it rains.
