Barker & Addicks reservoirs set for water release (Maps of areas)

As many of you know Hurricane Harvey hit the Texas coast on Friday, August 25, 2017.     I live in Katy, TX an area that was greatly impacted by the rains contributed to Hurricane Harvey.  In the past 3 days we have received over 20 inches of rain.

Sunday night, Jeff Linder  with the Harris County Flood Control District, held a press conference to discuss controlled releases of water from the Addicks and Barker reservoirs.  The releases are necessary to avoid failures of the rapidly rising reservoirs.

If you live in the area you are familiar with Barker Reservoir.

I have friends and clients that live near the Addicks Reservoir.

There has also been a voluntary evacuation issued for residents that may be affected by the release.

More info can be found on HCFCD.org

Maps can be found below detailing the areas affected.

As they tell us every time there is high water.  Turn Around Don’t Drown.  Be safe out there.
