The Upper San Jacinto River Basin Regional Sedimentation Study will identify the sub-watersheds in the basin that produce and store the most sediment.  With this information, sub-watersheds and individual locations can be prioritized for improvements and conceptual solutions.  The goal of these efforts is to reduce sediment inputs and/or enhance sediment storage to mitigate the loss of floodway conveyance. Non-construction best management practices will also be analyzed.  All identified projects, efforts, and practices will be ranked and included in an implementation plan, and ultimately all information developed as part of this project will be compiled into a regional sediment management plan which can guide future sedimentation mitigation efforts.  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 FIF grant.  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 TWDB FIF grant funds.
