Good evening Telfair neighbors, it’s late in the day but our operator has been working to protect us from this unproven, devastating flood. The flood levels are at 800+ year levels. We are one of the few areas in Fort Bend County not to be ordered to evacuate. Our system is currently operating as it is supposed to. The pumps are on,. You may notice our lakes are filling up and some streets have ponding, as designed. When the rain stops, our pumps will have a chance to catch up and lower the water level in our lakes north and south of I-69.
We are all very anxious and concerned. Comparatively, we are a small entity with limited resources. We will post as we can but please refer to the City of Sugar Land website for emergency updates.
You should make decision for your family as to whether you should voluntarily evacuate. But you should make the decision soon as possible as roads may become impassable. Please refer to the city, county or state (TxDOT) websites for road closures.
