Current Construction

Levee Construction Projects – Ongoing

This will be the second pump station constructed in the southern levee system. Located on Channel 3 on the western edge of the south levee system, this pump station will add an additional 270,000 gpm to the southern levee pumping capacity, thus increasing total pumping capacity in the southern levee system to 530,000 gpm.

The 5’ x 5’ sluice gates located at the northern end of Oyster Creek and Long Point Slough and the 5’ x 5’ flap gate at the southern end of Oyster Creek will provide back-up systems to existing structures during Brazos River high water events.

This project consists of adding three 72” knife gates to the interior face of the GCWA pump house levee structure located at the Brazos River and the GCWA canal in the southwestern corner of the northern levee system. These knife gates will provide an emergency back-up system to the three 72” existing flap gates on this structure during a Brazos River high water event. Construction has not begun.

This project consists of adding three 8’ x 8’ sluice gates to the GCWA levee structure located 900’ west of Sienna Parkway and McKeever Road. These gates will provide the first line of defense during a Brazos River high water event and will be backed up by a three 8’ x 8’ existing aluminum stop log system. Delivery of the gates is expected in April 2020. Construction has not begun.

This project consists of a concrete headwall and eight 8’ x 8’ sluice gates currently being constructed at the south pump station outfall structure located in the southwestern corner of the southern levee system. These gates will provide an emergency back-up system to the proposed exterior flap gates on this structure.

This project consists of adding five 10’ x 10’ flap gates to the exterior face of the north pump station outfall structure located in the southwestern corner of the northern levee system. These flap gates will provide the first line of defense during a Brazos River high water event and will be backed up by the five 10’ x 10’ sluice gate project that was just completed as the emergency back-up system on this structure.
