Good News!

 

The National Weather Service has decreased the Brazos River peak to 56′ at the Richmond gauge. Best news of the day. We are still in emergency operations though until the river starts receding and are continuing to pump water out via the two pump stations.

If you evacuated please do not return until you can confirm via either TXDOT or Fort Bend County official road information websites that you can safely make your way back. We encourage everyone who evacuated to stay out until the County or City issues an all clear. If you remain in Telfair please stay safe.

District Update

All in all compared to other Fort Bend County subdivisions, Telfair is fairing well.  We have had a lot of street flooding, but no reports of structural flooding.  Water is slowly receding, and we are pumping down the system as quickly as we can.  Our operator LMS is working full time feverishly to protect us. Our Streets should be dry sometime tomorrow and a day or two more to drain down the lakes to normal levels.

Thanks to all for being patient with us and allowing our operators time to work instead of answering questions. We’ve tried to provide you with regular updates as we can.

If you haven’t seen on the Fort Bend County OEM website the forecast for crest of the Brazos River has been reduced to 57.5′ instead of 59′ at the Richmond garage. This is great news.
