The small rivulet above the sandbar now represents the only way for water falling on the western third of Kingwood to get to the river. Hundreds of homes above this blockage flooded during Harvey. The Barrington, Kingwood Lakes, Kings Forest and Trailwood all had homes that flooded. While the sandbar looks small from the air, it is up to 15 feet high where it meets the drainage ditch.
