Harris County Judge Ed Emmett


In a region where weather conditions can produce intense rainfalls over long durations that can result in millions, if not billions of flood losses the District manages solutions that respect the community and its natural values.

In the past year, the Flood Control District’s Capital Improvement Projects have totaled over $100 million and have resulted in the widening and deepening of nine miles of channel along the County’s major bayous. They also include the excavation of detention basins that, taken together, can hold 1.4 billion gallons (or 2.5 Reliant Astrodomes) of storm water.
