Harris County Flood Control District has quietly started repairs to two more Kingwood Drainage Ditches. The first is G103-33-01, the ditch between Fosters Mill and Kings Point that enters the river near the mouth bar at Scenic Shores. The second is the Kingwood Diversion Ditch, G-103-38-00. It runs down the west side of Woodland Hills, crosses Kingwood Drive by the fire station, then descends to the lake between Trailwood Village and Forest Cove.
Work In Progress as of Monday 5/11/2020
Work on Diversion Ditch Expected to Start This Week
According to Beth Walters of Harris County Flood Control, work on the Diversion Ditch should start this week. Below are several pictures taken of severe erosion that threatens homes and trails.
Ditch maintenance includes erosion repairs, silt buildup removal, mowing, de-snagging (removing downed trees), and removing collapsed drainpipes.
Additional details are not yet available on the length of time repairs will take.
Here’s a list of planned maintenance projects on other ditches around the Kingwood area.
