Our purpose at Cypress Creek Association – Stop the Flooding is to educate and inform citizens and businesses owners along Cypress Creek in northwest Harris County, Texas. No words we offer can guild the black lily of flooding for the 10,000 home and business owners who lost their property during the Harvey flood. But before Harvey there was the Tax Day flood. Before the Tax Day flood there was the Memorial Day flood (1 & 2). Why? Why is there so much flooding on Cypress Creek? What can we do? Learn that here.
This chart is from the Greater Houston Flood Consortium’s report on Harvey. It notes the amount of spending on flood mitigation on each of Harris County’s 22 watersheds over the last 20 years or so. Cypress Creek is Harris County’s largest watershed with the longest stream (30 miles) in the county. Note the amount spent on flood mitigation here.
