Addicks Watershed De-Silt Program

Construction Advisory

As a part of the Harris County Flood Control District’s overall maintenance operations, the Flood Control District is undertaking multiple comprehensive projects to evaluate and, if necessary, de-silt channels for which the Flood Control District has property rights that drain directly to the Addicks reservoir. In addition, this program will evaluate repair impacts, and develop construction and maintenance plans, in coordination with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers as appropriate. This Program is part of an ongoing effort to ensure the channels in the Addicks watershed are functioning at design capacity as they carry stormwater out of surrounding neighborhoods and into the federal reservoir.

Residents in the neighborhoods surrounding Langham Creek, South Mayde Creek, Bear Creek and Horsepen Creek, and its tributaries, will begin to see construction activity around these waterways which will include trucks and heavy machinery. Residents are urged to respect all warning signs, and avoid trails and sidewalks which may be temporarily impacted as work crews move around the area. Additionally, residents may see trucks on neighborhood streets which are necessary to haul debris and sediment from the creek beds. For further information please visit www.HCFCD.org/F53.

The Flood Control District works to reduce flooding across the region and is committed to keeping residents informed. If you have any questions, you can reach the Flood Control District at 346-286-4000, or email communications@hcfcd.hctx.net.

No Motorized Vehicles Beyond This Point

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.

Scoop The Poop

Stop disease-causing bacteria in its tracks, by keeping our waterways clean. Do your part!

At home:

  • Pick up every poop
  • Bag it
  • Put it in the trash
  • Repeat weekly

Away from home:

  • Always bring bags
  • Pick up every poop
  • Bag it
  • Put it in the trash

Veterinarians, garbage collectors and health professionals all agree that the trash is the safest way to dispose of your dog’s poop. Dog droppings left on grass wash into our storm drains, increasing the level of bacteria and making waterways unsafe for swimming and fishing.
