Meeting Change Notice

The Fort Bend County Levee Improvement District No. 15 Board of Directors meeting on Monday, November 18, 2019, has been changed to the offices of The Muller Law Group. (202 Century Square Boulevard, Sugar Land, Texas 77478). The meeting will start at 4 pm.

This change will be for this meeting only. The meetings following will be back at The Club at Riverstone.

Brazos River Projections

Over the last few weeks, there has been a significant amount of rain in our area and even more upstream to our north. As such, river projections are increasing on the Brazos River, and the board wanted you to be aware. Today (10/18), the forecasted crest stands at 39.2 feet.

An anticipated crest approaching 40 feet will seal off gravity flow to the pump stations. This action means all rainfall that occurs this week (or until the Brazos River gauge recedes below 40 feet) will be pumped out of the area. We do not anticipate any issue with the storage capacity inside the district.

How are the pump stations?

All of our pump stations are fully operational and prepared for the potential 2-4” of rain expected over the next week. There is no expectation of any issues or concerns over this event.

We will not provide another update on this storm unless the conditions on the Brazos change.

Mosquito Spraying to Begin in October

During the monthly Levee Improvement District 15 (LID 15) meeting, the directors approved periodic mosquito spraying to begin in October. The vote was unanimous.

While this is not a required activity of the LID, the board believed that it was an action within their purview due to mosquito development from LID 15’s drainage and water detention facilities.

The board opted for a monthly relationship with BUGCO Pest Control (Richmond, TX). This is the same company that sprayed after Hurricane Harvey. The spraying will take place weekly in October; then the board will decide each month as to the need. As the weather cools, mosquitos are less frequent.
