Flooding Information On Sienna
“Paige and her team are knowledgeable, attentive, responsive, and patient. The HoustonProperties.com team put us into our first dream home, and due to that experience, we’ve returned to them time and again for our real estate needs. While the team’s focus is on completing your deal, their endgame is to ensure your needs are preserved and satisfied.” - Peter McGillivray & Jillian Jopling
During Hurricane Harvey, the levees and pumps protecting the Sienna worked well but were simply overwhelmed by the large volume of rain. This caused flooding in about 65 of its 7,700 houses, most of which were homes near the Brazos River (running west of Sienna’s western border, in Sienna Village of Waters Lake) and on the southeast side in Sienna Point.
After careful evaluation of the rare event, the Sienna Levee Improvement District (SPLID) has made improvements to reduce future risks of flooding, including deploying pumps with 80,000 gallons per minutes (gpm) of pumping capacity to increase the area’s pump capacity by 30%, and designing a new 270,000 gpm pump station.
