Fort Bend County Levee Improvement District 11
During routine inspections of the LID’s operator, LMS, and as reinforced by inquiries from Greatwood residents, the LID is looking into how to improve the wetland planning beds within the large lake, particularly along Greatwood Lake Drive. Upon completion of the lake edge reconstruction project, the LID did plant wetland plants within these beds, which are enjoyed by all Greatwood residents, but required by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers as part of the Lids wetlands permit. Unfortunately, shortly after planting, the lake level dropped which caused some of the wetland plants to die. The LID is investigating the cause in the fall of the lake level as well as determining best steps to prevent this from re-occurring. Once it is determined the cause of the water level fall and the best way to prevent it, the LID is committed to re-establishing plants that are attractive to the residents, but also conform to the wetlands permit.
