Channel 3 Widening

Channel 3, located in the western portion of the southern levee system, was widened in 2018-2019 from a 10-20’ bottom width to a 50-100’ bottom width. The channel was widened a distance of 10,560’ (2.0 miles) from Channel 3-3 approximately 3400’ west of Sienna Parkway to the south pump station. This increased the drainage and storage capacity of Channel 3 from 195 to 302 ac-ft., which is a capacity increase of 55%.
