Fort Bend Levee Improvement District No. 10 and Fort Bend County have experience heavy rainfall over the past 24 hours. Everything is draining as designed, but we are expecting additional rainfall in the next couple of days. The pumps for the pump station are operational. Please remove all trash cans from the street and check her out for drains to make sure everything is clear. If you see significant street flooding, do not drive through it. Residents should monitor for Fort Bend County Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management at https://FBCOEM.org and the City of Sugar Land Office of Emergency Management at https://www.sugarlandtx.gov/105/Emergency-Management for up to date weather and flooding notices.
This is a notification from FBC Levee Improvement District 10.
The operator for the district is aware of heavy street ponding throughout the district. The district has received 3 to 5 inches of rain over the course of the last 3 hours and at least another hour of rainfall is expected.
All detention ponds and drainage equipment are functioning as designed, but please make any effort possible to keep and/or remove trash cans from the street. They are blocking the drains and contributing to street ponding. You are also encouraged to remove all vehicles from the street and stay in your home until the event passes.
