The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Galveston District commander, Col. Lars N. Zetterstrom, and the Harris County Flood Control District (HCFCD) have executed the Project Partnership Agreement (PPA) for construction of the Clear Creek Flood Risk Management Project in Galveston, Texas.

According to USACE, HCFCD will construct the Clear Creek Project, using its own funds and federal funds, under the authority provided in Section 1043(b) of the Water Resources Reform and Development Act (WRRDA) of 2014, as amended.

A PPA is a legally binding agreement between the government and a non-federal sponsor, in this case HCFCD, for construction of a water resources project like Clear Creek.

It describes the project and the responsibilities of the government and the non-federal sponsor in the cost sharing and execution of work. Clear Creek is a Flood Risk Management project that was authorized by the Flood Control Act of 1968.

The project is located in Harris and Brazoria counties, Texas, with 17 cities within the watershed.

The modified authorized project consists of approximately 15 miles of channel conveyance improvements and 500 acre-feet of inline detention along Clear Creek, more than five total miles of conveyance improvements along three tributaries of Clear Creek, and a previously-constructed second outlet channel with a gated structure between Clear Lake and Galveston Bay.

Now that the PPA is signed, HCFCD will execute construction and the remaining design. The estimated completion date is September 2025.
