Mission Statement

The primary mission of the Fort Bend County Drainage District is to maintain the drainage channels, where the District has easements, in their existing flow conditions. This is accomplished through appropriate structural repairs and vegetation control. Secondarily, the District provides a review of plats and drainage plans of new development to be approved by Commissioners Court to assure the elimination of an adverse drainage impact on current and future residents.


Due to on-going health concerns affecting our area, the Fort Bend County Drainage District will only provide essential services until further notice.   

Construction plan and plat submittals can be digitally submitted by forwarding to the following email address for review and approval: [email protected]
