There is a creek in the Springwoods Village.

Springwoods Village Drainage Master Plan

Water system in harmony with development

Project Facts

Location Houston, Texas
Owner Harris County Improvement District
Size 1,800 acre site


The master plan design for Springwoods Village, located just outside the city limits of Houston, underwent a thorough analysis to safeguard the water system’s integrity and facilitate the area’s successful development.

About the project

Springwoods Village is a 1,800-acre planned community in unincorporated Harris County located just south of The Woodlands near the new ExxonMobil Campus. Our drainage master plan identified stormwater detention requirements and strategies for conveyance in four drainage corridors, which are connected by a series of dry and wet detention basins discharging to Spring Creek. 

Hydraulic and hydrologic modeling was used to demonstrate no adverse impact on the receiving streams to meet local requirements established by the Harris County Flood Control District. The plan will be the basis for meeting stormwater mitigation requirements for all developments in Springwoods through approximately 2025. The plan also accounts for sustainable low-impact development practices to reduce the potential detention required. Due to the long-term timing of the development, a phasing plan was developed to ensure adequate detention volume is provided as development takes place.
