Flood Control Channel Widening & Deepening

Project Description

Gradient was responsible for the hydraulic and hydrologic improvements along the Harris County Flood Control District channel unit K-158-0000, which conveys over 200 acres of offsite run-off from Highway 249 frontage. In addition, to widening and deepening the existing channel section to add capacity to the linear detention within the easement, the scope required the design of increased flow with aesthetic features that were harmonious with the existing environment as well as visually pleasing to the adjacent Noble Energy Center complex. This was accomplished by creating a non-typically channel section to allow walls with different level tiers, a constant water level and elaborate landscaping within the flood control easement. The project required coordination and approval from several jurisdictions including Harris County, Harris County Flood Control District (HCFCD), Malcomson Road MUD and Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT).
