HCFCD Brays Bayou Improvements  

Harris County Flood Control District (HCFCD) is a district created with a special purpose. Created by the Texas legislature in 1937, HCFCD was designed in response to devastating floods that struck the region in 1929 and 1935.

The Brays Bayou watershed is a large group of several urban parks that are fully urbanized within regions located within the watershed. Along with the U.S Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), HCFCD has launched a 480-million-dollar project called “Project Brays.”

The Brays Bayou project is specifically engineered to substantially reduce major risks associated with disastrous floods and bring relief to tens of thousands of residents and businesses within the Brays Bayou watershed.
