We are constantly striving to improve the quality of life within the boundaries of the Irving Flood Control District by maintaining and improving the infrastructure and working elements of flood control. View our current projects below for more details.
Valley Ranch Intake Sump Erosion Control
The Valley Ranch Intake Sump Erosion Control Project is underway to address the effects of weather, erosion and the unstable soils of North Texas on the sump located along Valley Ranch Parkway near Ranch Trail. The heavy storms in September delayed progress on the project, but the project is now complete. Installation of the erosion control mat, grassing and installation of shoreline protection water plants was completed early summer 2019.
Water Circle Canal Dredging
The Water Circle Canal Dredging Project is expected to remove over 10,000 cubic yards of silt from the waterway, improving storm-water conveyance and water quality. Crews are currently installing more than 3,500 linear feet of dredge pipeline into the waterway. This method will prevent conflicts with trails, sidewalks and streets. The estimated cost for the project is $240,000.
Cowboys Canal Erosion Control Wall Extension
The Cowboys Canal Erosion Control Wall Project has completed phase III with phase IV planning underway. Phase II finalized 1,550 linear feet of erosion control wall replacement and phase III took care of another 1,142 linear feet of repairs. This project is expected to be completed in late fall. The estimated cost for the current phase is $740,000.
