BARKER RESERVOIR UPDATE: Voluntary Evacuations / Roads & Neighborhoods

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has reported that the water levels within the Barker Reservoir in northeast Fort Bend County are beginning to impact residential roads. “It is critical now that residents in the western portion of the reservoir pay close attention to the developing situation there, and have a plan to keep yourself, your families and your pets safe,” said County Judge Robert Hebert. “Corp of Engineer predictions indicate that water could soon rise to levels that will enter structures in those areas."
