Voluntary Evacuation Remains

Per Fort Bend County Judge Hebert, FBL 17 (“District”) remains under a voluntary evacuation.   The District continues to monitor the levees and facilities in the District.  At this time, all facilities are functioning as designed.  The National Weather Service is projecting the Brazos River will crest at 59’.  This is a record level and it cannot be predicted how this level will impact Telfair, although it is believed the levee will not be overtopped at the projected height.  It is imperative that you consider your individual situation when making a determination as to whether to evacuate.  We will update the District’s website with any material changes, but we encourage you to visit Fort Bend County OEM and the City of Sugar Land websites for further information.
