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.
A boy scout with Troop 1283 working on his Eagle Scout service project has been given permission by the WCID145 Board to paint surface mileage markers on the trail along Horsepen Creek. He and his team of helpers will be starting the project as soon as weather permits. We are proud to help his team in his quest to achieve Eagle Scout and look forward to walking the route his team will mark.
