Bayou Blockage

Building an obstacle to block the flow of water in the bayous is illegal. Recently this dam/walkway was found near one of the bridges. It cost taxpayer dollars to have it dismantled. Please refrain from creating any impediment with any material anywhere that disrupts the continual course of the water.

If you observe anyone attempting to build such obstacle or one already in place, please contact authorities or H2O Consulting.

Trail Updates- 3/19/2021

We have just received notification the repairs to trails will begin Saturday, March 20th. It will be done in five phases. Each phase will be completed before moving on to the next phase. Hopefully this will limit the need to completely redo your usual route. Barring any unforeseen delays, the concrete work will be completed by mid-May. The target completion date for the total project is sometime in early June. If you would like to follow the progress of this project, below is a map of the areas effected with the different phases marked.

Parts of the trail will be blocked off where the repairs are taking place. Please be considerate and avoid the areas that are blocked off. Also, it is a definite safety issue. They will try and complete the project as quickly as possible. Your cooperation will be very much appreciated. We are very enthused to see how many residents are utilizing our trail system. Our goal is to maintain them to the utmost, to ensure your safety and enjoyment.

Freeze Watch

Harris County WCID 145 residents, it is time to prepare for colder temperatures! There is a Freeze Watch in effect for Sunday night through Tuesday morning, February 14th – February 16, 2021. Temperatures are expected to drop to freezing levels overnight.

How can District residents prepare? Practice the “Four P’s” as the cold fronts set in:


  • Dress in warm clothing, wear coats and gloves when outdoors.
  • Protect children and the elderly. Never leave them in a cold place or vehicle.
  • Temperatures are predicted to be in the teens Monday night and Tuesday morning.


  • Bring your pets indoors.
  • Provide a warm, safe place for them to eat and sleep.


  • Prevent frozen pipes and damage to your home by opening the cabinets under the kitchen and bathroom sinks to allow warm air to circulate and warm the pipes.
  • Insulate outdoor faucets and exposed pipes and be sure to disconnect and drain hoses from outdoor spigots.


  • Protect plants from freezing by covering them with plant-cover fabric, or a light blanket with plastic sheeting on top of it.
  • Hydrate plants early so they can absorb and stay healthy through the cold.

Additionally, there are a few vehicle-safety tips to observe during winter weather:

  • Keep your gas tank full.
  • Have tire pressure checked.
  • Have a phone charger, first aid kit, blankets, and jumper cables in your car.
  • Check local road conditions at www.houstontranstar.org. State highway information available at www.drivetexas.org.

Lastly, Fire Departments have provided some safety tips surrounding space heaters and other supplemental heating sources during the colder days:

  • Never leave a space heater unattended or a child unattended with a space heater.
  • Keep all combustible materials (including yourself!) at least three (3) feet away from the heater.
  • Never overload outlets or breakers.
  • Do not use extension cords for the heater.
  • Always turn it off if leaving the room and/or going to sleep.

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.

Maintaining the Bayous

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.

Thank you for your cooperation.
