About F-53 – Rehabilitation of Channels Upstream Of Addicks Reservoir
The Addicks De-Silt Program consists of multiple comprehensive projects to evaluate and de-silt channels for which the District has property rights that drain directly to the Addicks reservoir. In addition, this program will repair impacts, and develop construction and maintenance plans, in coordination with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers as appropriate.
The goal of this program is to make sure these channels are functioning at design capacity as they carry stormwater out of surrounding neighborhoods and into the federal reservoir. Rainfall within the 138-square-mile Addicks Reservoir watershed drains along 159 miles of open waterways, including Langham Creek (U100-00-00), South Mayde Creek (U101-00-00), Bear Creek (U102-00-00), Horsepen Creek (U106-00-00), and its tributaries. As a part of the Flood Control District’s overall maintenance operations, this program follows the Tax Day 2016 and Hurricane Harvey storms, which sent record levels of sediment-laden stormwater through the channels leading into the reservoir, and caused severe erosion in some areas.
