Frequently Asked Questions

Only if we need to pass a bond.

The District is currently constructing a second stormwater pump station in the south levee system. The station will consist of 6 pumps each rated at 45,000 gallons per minute for a total station capacity of 270,000 gpm. This station, in conjunction with the existing 260,000 gpm pump station will give a total pumping capacity of 530,000 gpm or 763,200,000 gallons per day. This is equivalent to pumping out 2.5 Astrodomes per day. Two more pump stations are planned in the South levee system in the next 3 years.

The North levee system has two existing pump stations with capacities of 140,000 gpm and 146,400 gpm for a total pumping capacity of 286,400 gpm or 412,416,000 gallons per day. The north levee system does not need as much pumping capacity as the South due to geographical characteristics including topo and deeper channels.

Sienna is divided into two distinct levee systems. This is due to the FBC external channel needing to convey McKeever Road development stormwater flow west to the Brazos River. This channel divides the 2 levee systems. Therefore, both levee systems require their own drainage and pumping facilities.

The north levee stem encompasses all land from SH 6 to the external channel south of Bees Creek/McKeever Roads. The Woods/Acreage Estates subdivision is located in the north levee system.

The south levee system encompasses all land from the external channel to the southern levee boundary.

A typical 6-pump stormwater pump station costs approximately $12M to build. This consists of approximately $3M in electrical facilities (including control buildings, generators, fuel tanks and wiring), $4M in structural items, $2M in discharge piping, $2M in pumps and motors and $1M miscellaneous site work, monitoring systems and security fencing. An individual pump and motor costs approximately $300,000.

The district has purchased 14 mobile Gator Pumps RATED at 10,000 gpm each for a total pumping capacity of 140,000 gpm. The district has also purchased all emergency HDPE piping fabricated to hook up 10 additional 12-16” supplemental rented pumps if needed.

The north levee system consists of 9.7 miles of levee.

The south levee system consists of 10.4 miles of levee.

SPLID contains a total of 20.1 miles of levee.

NO motorized vehicles are allowed on the levees at anytime, and fines and penalties can be enforced.

Although the District strictly prohibits motorized vehicles of any kind, walking is not prohibited.

In fact, SPLID has constructed a number of levee trails, to be used for your enjoyment.

Trail maps are located under the Parks section of the SPLID website.
