District Update – September 1st at 11:00am

Brazos River

According to the National Weather Service, the Brazos River has CRESTED, and the river level is slowly starting to go down! As soon as we receive word from the County, we will post any changes to evacuation orders here.

Steep Bank Creek – Water Levels

We are making progress – we have unofficial reports of an estimated amount of 8 more inches down overnight. The third delivery of supplemental pumps received overnight are almost online.

Also, based on the best information we currently have available, it is our estimate that it will may take 3 to 5 more days before homes are fully drained. Again, this is only an estimate, but we felt it important to share the best estimate we could provide.

LID 15 – Prestwick

We have received unconfirmed reports of approximately 10-15 homes in Prestwick with water inside the homes. Please extend your support and assistance to those families, as well.

Return Home and Recovery

We are actively working with the HOA to coordinate volunteers and supplies for residents needing assistance with the recovery process. Later today, we will post a list of needed supplies, drop-off location, and a call for volunteers. Stay tuned. We will also post preliminary informational material to assist homeowners with recovery. The most important thing for you to remember as you enter your homes is to BE SAFE!

Limited Trash Pickup

Best Trash will resume limited trash pickup in Riverstone. Storm and flood debris will not be collected, and they are requesting that it not be placed with regular household trash. No service will be provided in areas whose access is limited by impassable streets. Recycling pickup has also been temporarily suspended. Please see for full details.

We are working with other governmental agencies and OEM on heavy trash and flood debris. Stay tuned.
