GCWA has completed the dredging portion of the project and will be moving the excavator off-site the week of February 13 th . Spreading and grading of the spoils will continue early next week. District representatives and GCWA will meet on site in the future to discuss the plan for spreading and grading the silt near the trail to make sure everything drains correctly. GCWA also graded and cut additional drainage channels behind Sage Thistle to eliminate the ponding issue that had been reported.

Oyster Creek Dredging and Desilting Operations by Gulf Coast Water Authority – Update

GCWA continues to dredge the creek and anticipates completing this portion of the project in early February. Placement of some of the spoils piles created ponding in some areas along the trail; including water standing on the trail. GCWA will address this issue by cutting some drainage channels to drain the water until the final grading occurs at a later date.

GCWA began preliminary grading the week before Christmas. All of the spoils piles will be graded once the material is dry enough to work with; a preliminary and final grade will occur.

North Fort Bend Water Authority Fee Increase

Effective January 1, 2017, the North Fort Bend Water Authority (NFBWA) is increasing its mandated surface water fee from $3.10 per 1,000 gallons to $3.40 per 1,000 gallons. This Subsidence District mandated fee, reflected as a separate line item on your water bill, is paid directly to the NFBWA and is used to design, build and operate new infrastructure, which delivers surface water to your district.

Fort Bend MUD #146 also has successfully participated in the first year of the NFBWA Larry’s Toolbox water conservation program and will begin receiving rebates from the NFBWA for its participation in 2017. The District expects to use the rebates to offset operation and maintenance expenses or to construct new projects in the District.
