Our History and Purpose

IFCD 3 was formed by the Texas State Legislature in 1983 for the purpose of providing and maintaining necessary flood control and drainage facilities to remove the District area from the 100-year floodplain of the Elm Fork of the Trinity River. The District oversees construction and maintenance of the levee, storm water pump station, canals, ponds and other storm drainage management facilities to protect residents, businesses and their respective assets from the impact of flood-related water damage.

Since its inception, the District has created and maintained the 5.5 miles of waterways and implemented a number of key projects to serve the Valley Ranch Community.
