LID 19 Directors will be holding a community meeting at the Riverstone Clubhouse on November 12, 2019 at 7pm. Residents are encouraged to attend the meeting and meet their LID 19 Directors and learn about the ongoing operations of the District. Please refer to www.fblid19.com or the District Facebook page for upcoming information.
At the September 27th board meeting, LID 19 Directors voted to maintain the District’s 2018 tax rate of 68 cents per $100 of assessed value for the 2019 tax year. The District is primarily responsible for overseeing storm drainage and maintaining the levee system that protects homes from rising water. The District also continues to implement projects that increase resilience against flooding . The unchanged tax rate of 68 cents will allow the District to continue to provide these services while also paying down the District’s debt. District residents are encouraged to stay tuned to www.fblid19.com for news in the District and follow the District Facebook page for updates.
As of 2:00 pm today, portions of the intersection of University Boulevard and LJ Parkway are temporarily impassable due to street flooding. The road conditions will change frequently, as the intensity of rainfall changes over time.
Fort Bend County LID No. 19 emergency response team is monitoring the Brazos River and local rainfall predictions of this event. As of 2:00 p.m. today, the accumulated rainfall in the LID area is approximately 2.8 inches in the past 24 hours with 2.5 inches falling in the past hour. NOAA predictions are for 2 to 3 more inches over the next 6 hours.
With Brazos River at approximately 12 feet, the District will remain in full gravity flow conditions. Gravity flow means that free drainage outfall to the Brazos River is available, and the LID’s drainage is not dependent on pumping.
Should intense cells fall over the area, isolated street ponding may occur, but should clear quickly after the rains ends. All usual precautions for heavy rainfall should be taken by residents, including avoiding travel by car if possible. Further postings will be made should the NOAA predictions change significantly.
