Afternoon Update – September 2nd at 2:00pm

Steep Bank Creek

As many of you have returned to the community, you have likely seen that the drainage at Steep Bank Creek has improved significantly. Based on current estimates, we believe all areas may be accessible sometime tomorrow!


So many thanks to the numerous volunteers and donations. Keep the donations coming (especially the priority needs in the previous post) – they are so appreciated by everyone. We are especially in need of masks. If you have already picked up supplies, and there is still something you still need – you *might* be able to come back to the Rec Center, as the stock of supplies changes every hour.

Again, please remember to be safe and stay hydrated as you work!


Fort Bend County and FEMA are aware of the debris pickup needs in Riverstone. At this time, we do not have exact pickup dates, but please remember to place debris BETWEEN the curb and the sidewalk. They cannot pickup past the sidewalk from your private property.


The LIDs are working on a 4-phase mosquito abatement plan today. We hope to start the initial phases of fogging and larvicide overnight tonight! Please know that mosquito control is very difficult – especially given the widespread water accumulation. However, we’re tackling it head on, and will do our best to improve the situation as much as we can over the coming days and weeks. In the meantime, please remember to protect yourselves with appropriate insect repellent!
