COVID-19 Update

While we all are dealing with the COVID-19 virus pandemic, the board of directors for your LID 19 wanted to provide a brief update on the current status of the pump station and other operational matters.

The Steep Bank pump station, connected to LID 19, is operating at prime efficiency. We have full gravity flow, which means any rain can flow into and through the district without impediment. As such, we are not currently pumping and do not anticipate needing to have the pump station pull water out of the area.

Currently, the Brazos River gauge is under 15 feet. Flood stage is at 45 feet. There is rain in the forecast over the next few weeks, but we do not anticipate that the water levels will rise to concerning levels in the near term.

Our monthly meetings continue with some alterations. We have asked non-essential consultants and LID 19 vendors not to attend but provide written updates to the board. These remain open meetings to residents, but due to the governmental restrictions on gatherings of over ten people, we may need to rotate residents into the sessions if need be.

Governor Abbott, on Monday, suspended some open meetings laws to allow for teleconferencing for governmental meetings. This will assist in the official recommendations/requirements to limit face-to-face meetings to help slow the spread of COVID-19. We, alongside our legal counsel, are currently developing procedures for the temporary changes.

All of our LID 19 team members are working hard to ensure that the water flow inside the district is not a worry.

If anything changes in the district, we will notify you on the LID 19 website, Facebook page, and if need be through emails and texts.

Damaged Sign on LJ Parkway

LID 19 Board of Directors are currently working to replace the monument sign located on LJ Parkway that was recently damaged by a car crash. The Board has begun the insurance process, and after which time, the Board will be able to determine the timeline in which to replace the monument sign.

The damaged sign is the first of two planned monument signs for the District as an effective means of real-time communication during emergencies. The signs are a useful way to provide valuable information to residents quicker, especially during an emergency. The plan for a second sign is currently in the approval process with the Riverstone HOA and the City of Missouri City.

The signs represent a part of the District’s overall communication strategy that includes multiple sources of communication to the residents. The District will continue to have multiple contact streams to keep residents informed in the event of an emergency. Residents are encouraged to sign up for notifications via the District’s several media sources:

  1. Facebook – Fort Bend LID 19
  2. Website –
  3. Email Blasts and Quarterly Newsletter – Visit Website to sign up
  4. Text messaging – Visit the website to sign up

In addition to weather and other important District news, residents can also find in-depth articles on relevant topics on the district’s website. The LID 19 Facebook page also contains relevant information and is a source for real-time posts during extreme weather events.

Year 2 of SWMP – Community Training

LID 19 has entered Year 2 of its Stormwater Management Plan, as submitted to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. The plan was prepared in order to prevent pollution of LID 19’s drainage system. Under Year 2 of this plan, LID 19 is required to educate its residents on the effects pollution has on our drainage system.
