The Brazos River is rising due to water flow from upstream and continued rainfall over the Brazos catchment area. The current river level projections indicate that the District may partially or fully lose gravity flow of rain water to the Flatbank Creek/Brazos River.
If this condition occurs, we are fully prepared to mobilize the District gator pumps to remove any rain water out of the District. Under the current projected scenario, we are fully equipped to avoid any structural flooding across the District. It is possible some isolated street flooding may occur, depending on rainfall intensity in the District while gravity flow is restricted. We will continue to provide drainage updates on the District and if any circumstances change.
Please be mindful while driving and never drive over flooded streets when water depth is unknown. Whenever possible please park vehicles off the road at a higher level to minimize any potential damage from street flooding.
