Stormwater Protection and Construction Activities

Fort Bend County Municipal Utility District No. 25 (the District) falls within the extraterritorial jurisdiction of the City of Houston. Hence, all construction projects within the District must have City of Houston approval in addition to approval by the District's engineer and Board of Directors. Thus, the District will adopt the City of Houston's guidelines for stormwater protection that are impacted by construction and development activities as part of the District's comprehensive Stormwater Management program.

According to the City of Houston's website for stormwater management and construction activities, "The Storm Water Management Handbook for Construction Activities provides general guidance related to erosion and sediment controls and other measures to control storm water pollutants from construction activities for the jurisdictional areas of the City of Houston, Harris County Flood Control District, and unincorporated areas of Harris County. The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) publishes a separate document, Storm Water Management Guidelines for Construction Activities which provides guidance on the use of storm water management measures for state highway construction projects. Copies of this handbook can be obtained by contacting the Storm Water Management Joint Task Force, P.O. Box 131006, Houston, Texas 77216. Information on ordering the TxDOT handbook is available from TxDOT at 6400 E. Highway 290, Austin, Texas 78701-2483. Additional information is provided at the following websites:
