Welcome to Harris County Water Control and Improvement District No. 145
Welcome to the website for Harris County Water Control and Improvement District No. 145 (the “District”). The District through the dedication of its Directors and Consultants, is committed to maintaining the channels and trails within its jurisdiction.
The District services the neighborhoods of Northmead Village, Middlegate Village, Easton Commons, Wheatstone Village Copperstone, Southcreek Village, Copperfield Place, Southdown Village, Southdown Estates and Southpoint.
Please do not dispose of tree or yard waste on the bayous. It is costly to have crews clean it off to facilitate the mowing. Your tax dollars can be put to better use than removing debris that should be placed at the curb for trash pick ups.
We are in the process of getting permits and bids to repair the parts of the trail damaged by machinery during the desilting work and general settlement of the soil beneath the concrete pads, Hopefully, this project will begin in December or January – weather permitting
Chad King and his fellow workers from H20 Consulting are keeping the neighborhood beautiful by cleaning up the bridges. Below are some pictures from the West Road Bridge cleaning, up next is the Longenbaugh bridge!
Graffiti is a problem in our neighborhoods. Just in the first 3 1/2 months of 2020, over $5,500 has been spent removing and/or applying a surface that makes removal easier. It has appeared under bridges, on retainer walls and the trails themselves. Some are symbols, some are offensive.
According to state law regarding vandalism and intentionally painting on property:
- Class “C” – misdemeanor if the pecuniary loss is less than $100.
- Class “B” – $100 or more but less than $750.
- Class “A” – $750. or more but less that $2,500.
Anything above this amount is considered a felony. The graffiti removed from the trails last week fell in the Class “A” category. The police are notified and/or a police report is filed with each incident.
Please remind everyone, if caught, there will be ramifications and fines. Your tax dollars could be put to better use than rectifying the willful acts of a few individuals. Thank you
“See something – Say something.”
Residents: Harris County Flood Control has given WCID 145 the task of maintaining the bayous within our district. Please do not plant bushes, trees, gardens, etc. in this area. The mowers should not have to go around these obstacles. Any such plantings will be removed by the District.
In response to the historic flooding from Hurricane Harvey, the Harris County Flood Control District has embarked on a county-wide assessment of all of our bayous, creeks, channels and stormwater detention basins. The purpose of this assessment is to identify damages caused by the flooding and to prioritize them for immediate and future repairs.
It is against the law to ride any motorized vehicles on the bayous throughout Copperfield. Not only is it a nuisance to residents backing up to the bayous but it can damage the trails and/or the channels that keep our area from flooding. As a reminder, there is a fine imposed if caught.
If you see someone using a motorized vehicle on the trail, please call the Sheriff’s non emergency number (713) 221-6000 and report it.
