Main Channel High Bank Rehabilitation

Starting June 1, 2022, a contractor engaged by Pecan Grove Municipal District will begin work on the banks of the main channel which drains the portion of the District generally located south of Plantation Drive.

Project includes re-establishing backslope swales and adjusting backslope drains along Main Channel to prevent standing water on the maintenance berms which can cause erosion and failures.  Construction will primarily involve small earth moving equipment but may, at time, involve larger equipment as necessary to complete the project.

Any vegetation that overhangs the channel high bank and impedes the construction activity may be trimmed to facilitate construction.

This project will take approximately three months to complete.

Should you have any questions regarding the project or concerns about construction please contact the District office at (281) 238-5000.
