Please follow the link to view the report prepared by LJA Engineering, who was hired by the District as an expert to evaluate drainage in Plantation, Sections 4 and 5 and provide recommendations to reduce the potential impact of future flooding. The District is holding a special meeting on Wednesday, October 4, 2017 at 6:00 p.m. in the ballroom at the Pecan Grove Plantation Country Club and LJA will be present to make a presentation of their findings.
Last night the plug that had been installed in the TXDOT inlet outside of the levee on FM 359 near the Pecan Lakes entry failed. This failure of the plug brought stormwater onto FM 359. The situation has been managed. Currently the stormwater is under control. The district constructed a temporary ditch along the back wall of Pecan Lakes to take water out to Jones Creek through our pump station. The storm water at the north levee crossing is being managed by trailer mounted pumps. Operations of our pump stations are normal.
Construction activity related to the Plantation 7 Drainage Improvements Project on the property of the golf course has completed. All work activities on the golf course are now being conducted by the golf course ownership and not under the guidance of the MUD.
The MUD continues construction for the project along Plantation Drive. The work consists of installing the underground storm pipe along the south side of Plantation Drive towards Quarterpath Drive. It is estimated the work will continue through the middle of June, and is dependent on weather conditions. There will be lane closures along in the work area as the contractor progresses. Traffic control plans have been approved by Fort Bend County and will be implemented for the safety of the contractor and residents of the District. We appreciate your patience as we continue to improve the drainage infrastructure in Pecan Grove MUD.
