Addicks Reservoir Update (with video)

Thursday update and important details on the Addicks Reservoir’s status.

Please “share” this and help us dis-spell inaccurate reports and panic about the Katy area flooding due to planned future water releases. The affected area is northeast of Clay and Highway 6 which is over 5-1/2 miles from the closest edge of our district and miles east of what is generally considered Katy.

Harris County Flood Control District has issued the data below to help educate the public and provide accurate information about current status of our two closest reservoirs. Below you will find exactly which neighborhoods and streets could be affected by the reservoirs current water levels and what might happen should the water level continue to rise.

If you do not live in immediately adjacent to the Addicks Reservoir in the Bear Creek Village subdivision, the rising water should have no effect on you or your neighborhood. Please read below for details or find the original post and maps on their site here: https://www.hcfcd.org/…/addicks-reservoir-is-rising-water-…/
