Harris County officials broke ground April 17 on another of R. G. Miller | DCCM projects – a new $6.1 million drainage system designed to improve flood control for the Westfield Pines and Village subdivisions in west Harris County.
Both subdivisions were severely affected during Hurricane Harvey, with 33 single-family homes flooded.
The Harris County Engineering Department Recovery and Resilience Division initiated the project, in partnership with the Harris County Flood Control District and the Northwest Municipal Utility District No. 12. All were represented at the groundbreaking event.
The project includes upsizing 3,100 linear feet of storm sewer system, reconstructing driveways and street sections, adjusting waterlines and sanitary sewer lines, and constructing a detention pond.
Milton Rahman, Executive Director of Harris County Engineering, has said that the project will take approximately 145 days to complete.
Construction is set to begin in May.
