If a regional activity center is built on Tract 5, University Boulevard & US 59 by Smart Financial Centre- will Ditch H be able to handle the run-off? Will Telfair flood because of this development?

Development on Tract 5 will have no drainage impact on Ditch H or Telfair.  The Tract 5 property is within Fort Bend County Levee Improvement District (LID) 17. This LID has provided all of the required detention for existing and future development within its boundaries. The Tract 5 location outfalls directly to the Brazos River southwest of the UH campus through a control structure that is operated by the LID.

Additionally, there are specific site drainage requirements and standards for development within the City of Sugar Land. All development (commercial, single-family residential, office, etc.) must be built in accordance with city engineering standards and will follow national and local standards. As per City regulations, all development within the City of Sugar Land must have no-impact on other areas to be permitted, when designed for the 1% chance event.
