Hazard Mitigation Plan 2020 Update

The City of Sugar Land is currently updating the 2020 Hazard Mitigation Plan. The purpose of the Plan is to identify natural and man-made hazards, activities to reduce losses from those hazards, and establish a coordinated process to implement the Plan. The City needs your input to create a safer, more disaster-resilient community. The Survey is comprised of 30 questions and is divided into the following three sections:

This survey consists of three sets of questions:

  1. The first section identifies demographic information used to correlate responses to the questionnaire.
  2. The second section involves potential hazards near you and whether your knowledge of potential hazards influenced your decision to choose where you live.
  3. The last section is about your experience and knowledge of natural and non-natural hazards in general and steps your household has taken to prepare for hazardous events.

Sheet Piling Installation

In connection with the levee raising project, the District will be installing sheeting piling along a section of the levee adjacent to Rabbs Bayou and the wastewater treatment plant. The project is expected to take 7 to 10 days to complete.

While the contractor will make every effort to mitigate the noise as much as possible, the installation process will be noisy. Properties close to the installation site will experience noise pollution during regular business hours from approximately 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

We recognize this may be temporarily inconvenient, but believe it is in the best interests of the District and the residents protected by District facilities.

Levee Raising Project

Fort Bend County Levee Improvement District No. 11 is currently raising its levee to increase the protection from flood water in the Brazos River. This was one of the biggest concerns that we heard after Hurricane Harvey and the District has worked to achieve this level of protection. This level of protection will give LID 11 one of the highest levels of protection in the Fort Bend County area. During this time of construction, there will be increased traffic on the levee, including large vehicles and construction equipment.

The safety of our residents is a priority. We have heard the residents’ concerns regarding the speed of the trucks and have conveyed the message to the Contractor. They have instructed their drivers to keep to safe speeds.

Additionally, FBCLID 11 strongly urges all residents to take care and to avoid the levee area during construction. This is for the safety of our residents and the Contractors.

In order to protect the residents and the construction workers, we have asked City of Sugar Land to increase patrols of the levee.

As a reminder, unauthorized motor vehicles on the levee is a criminal offense regardless of whether construction is taking place or not. If you witness an unauthorized motor vehicle on the District’s levee, please contact the City of Sugar Land police.
