Brazos River Levels

RiverPark Neighbors –

Levee Improvement District (LID) #10 is aware of an issue that people are using the NOAA Brazos River Gauge at US 59 to get information related to the RiverPark community. We would like to encourage RiverPark residents to instead use the NOAA Brazos River Gauge @ Richmond for information.  This is more accurate for LID 10.  All emergency action stages are based on this gauge, as it represents the river height and not a Sea Level elevation.

Link to Brazos River Gauge @ Richmond: https://water.weather.gov/ahps2/hydrograph.php?wfo=hgx&gage=rmot2

Currently, the Brazos River Elevation is at 42.68 ft and projected to reach 44.50 ft by May 10th. At the projected peak elevation, the Brazos River is still well in its banks and is 4 feet lower than the very bottom of the protected levee. Very little rainfall has hit the Fort Bend County area, with most of the storms being North of I-10. However, our levee operator has been inspecting our community, monitoring the river and rainfall as well as making sure our Storm Water Pump Station is fully operational should we need to pump any upcoming rainfall in the district.

For additional information please use the Fort Bend County OEM website for other information regarding this event.

Emergency Action Plan is in place

With the severe weather expected in our area, Fort Bend County Levee Improvement District No. 10 (“LID 10”) would like to update you regarding the steps being taken to protect the community.  Our Emergency Action Plan is in place and will be followed accordingly. Coordination with the City of Sugar Land and Fort Bend County is taking place and our operators and engineers are in constant communication with them.

If LID 10 incurs a situation that requires notification to the residents, it will be sent by the same channels you are receiving this message. Otherwise, consider all systems to be working as designed.

As a precautionary measure, please do not place trash cans in the street and avoid parking vehicles in the street until after the event has passed. The residual effects of Tropical Storm Nicholas are anticipated to last several days with the most severe weather for the district occurring tonight and tomorrow.
