Supplemental Pump Purchase

The LID 19 and LID 15 Boards have voted to approve the purchase of 12 supplemental pumps to provide an additional pumping capacity of over 80,000 gallons per minute. The supplemental pumps, together with the existing permanent pumps, will double the total combined pumping capacity at Steep Bank Creek (up to 160,000 gallons per minute ) this year.

Delivery of the supplemental pump is anticipated in June 2018. The pumps will be stored at the Steep Bank Creek pump station site and will be trailer-mounted so that they can be moved to alternate locations within LID 19 or LID 15 if necessary. An announcement will be posted to the websites once the pumps are delivered.

In addition to the supplemental pumps, both LIDs have undertaken measures to implement after-action recommendations. Please visit your LID website to see what has been approved to date.

Severe Weather Alert

We are aware of the possibility of severe weather today. We are currently monitoring the situation and communications from Fort Bend County along with the National Weather Service. In the event of a significant rain event there may be some street level ponding. Currently all pumps and detention facilities are fully functional.

Reports of Street Ponding

The LIDs’ operator and HOA have received several calls from residents regarding ponding in the streets due to rainfall on and after Sunday, December 2. These reports of street ponding appear to be localized to sections within LID 15 with ongoing home construction activity.

The LIDs’ engineers have explained that temporary street ponding is expected during intense rainfall over short durations. The engineer has received reports that the heaviest rainfall on Sunday, December 2, was approximately 2 inches over 30 minutes. Under those heavy rainfall conditions, temporary street ponding would not be unusual, and that the water should recede once the rain slows or stops.

In the areas impacted during this week’s recent rain events, construction debris or siltation controls may have inhibited the storm sewer system from working at its full capacity. The operator for MUD 128 (as owner of the storm sewer system) is inspecting the storm sewer systems in these areas to confirm they are clear of construction debris or any blockage.

If you are seeing ponded water in the streets that does not recede after the rain has stopped or slowed, please make a note of the location (and take a photo if possible) and let us know through the website (Contact Us tab above). The LIDs will do their best to investigate it promptly, or communicate the issue to the appropriate MUD operators as soon as possible.
