Willow Creek Watershed

Recommended Posts


"The Willow Creek watershed is located in northwest Harris County and drains about half of the City of Tomball. Willow Creek is the single primary stream within the watershed and flows into Spring Creek just upstream of where Spring Creek crosses under I-45. The Willow Creek watershed covers about 54 square miles and has about 56 miles of open streams in the watershed, including the primary stream and tributary channels. Based on the 2010 U.S. Census, the estimated population of the Willow Creek watershed is 45,890. 

A large floodplain exists along Willow Creek that covers mostly undeveloped land. The downstream end of the watershed is within the floodplain of Spring Creek."




"The Harris County Flood Control District unveiled plans for the Boudreaux Stormwater Detention Basin project to solve flooding in Willow Creek at a virtual public meeting on Sept. 27.

The detention basin is being proposed in the Willow Creek watershed in northwest Harris County, with the project in the preliminary engineering stage and plans to move into the design stage, said Brandie Zenon, manager of capital projects department north, during the meeting."
