Projects

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 repair involves draining water out of a portion of the sump through the use of a temporary dam and pumping equipment. The work also includes the installation of a wall below normal water level, erosion control matting and shoreline aquatic plantings in order to further protect the shoreline from erosion. The heavy storms in September slowed progress on this project, but it’s about 60 percent complete.

Valley Ranch Intake Sump Dredging

This dredging project was completed in September. Our crews removed more than 2,000 cubic yards of silt from the waterway, which will significantly improve the flow of storm water.

Water Circle Canal Wall Repair

This project was completed this fall and the newly-renovated wall held up very well during the heavy storms in September.

Water Circle Canal Dredging

An upcoming dredging project in the Water Circle Canal is expected to remove nearly 10,000 cubic yards of silt from the waterway. Work will begin in late 2018 and continue into 2019.

Cowboys Canal Erosion Control Wall Extension

Work on the extension of the Cowboys Canal Erosion Control Wall is underway and is approximately 40 percent complete. This project was delayed due to high water levels in September.
