This Study will provide an evaluation of sedimentation in the Upper San Jacinto River Basin, including identification of which sub-watersheds in the basin produce and store the most sediment, prioritization of individual watersheds/locations for improvements, and development of conceptual sedimentation solutions.  Conceptual solutions could include future projects with the goal of reducing sediment inputs and/or enhancing sediment storage, as well as non-construction best management practices, with the ultimate goal of mitigating the loss of floodway conveyance in the basin. The cost of the project is estimated at $750,000. City of Houston, City of Humble, and Harris County Flood Control District (the Partners) have each agreed to fund a portion of the fifty percent local match ($375,000) required by the Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) Flood Infrastructure Fund (FIF) grant SJRA has received for the project. SJRA will perform in-kind services in an effort to reduce the local match amount to be funded by the Partners. The remaining fifty percent ($375,000) of the project cost will be funded by FIF grant funds.
