Evening Update on Steep Bank Creek

As we have noted, the district has been utilizing trailer mounted pumps to add pumping resources to the pump station. The combination of the existing pump station (working at full power) and these additional pumps have resulted in a significant five foot drop in the water level at Steep Bank Creek (see pics below).

Over the next few days, the district will receive a large amount of rain with the forecasts varying widely. In addition, the Brazos River is now forecasted to crest at 49.9 feet early Sunday morning, essentially reaching the major flood stage. Please know that the levees in our district were constructed to handle this projected river level.

As conditions change we will be updating the website and sending out emails / texts. Please make sure you have signed up for alerts and be mindful of street ponding during strong downpours.
