Per the Richmond gauge, the current Brazos River level is 54.98’. This river gauge is already higher than the peak elevation we experienced during Memorial Day 2016 event. The National Weather Service is still projecting the Brazos River will crest at 56’. At this projection, we still believe there will be enough freeboard for the water in the Brazos River to stay within its banks and not overtop the levee. Fort Bend County Levee Improvement District No. 11 remains under a voluntary evacuation as issued by Fort Bend County Judge Hebert. Fort Bend County Levee Improvement District No. 11 is taking all precautions to protect against breaches of our levee, but you should carefully consider your family’s safety and individual circumstances in this situation. It is impossible to predict the actual River levels and its potential impact on the Greatwood community. IF the levee breaches or overtops, it will be impossible to exit Greatwood at that time. Please continue to listen to local media as well as the Fort Bend County OEM website fbcoem.org.
The District would like to thank all of the volunteers from the community who came out to help fill sand bags to help with a localized spot of erosion on the levee. Please know the United States Army Corps of Engineers reviewed and approved the repair and because of all of the volunteers hard work, the District has numerous additional sandbags filled and on hand should the need arise.
I have confirmed that all pumps continue in operation to remove the water from our drainage system.
