Recent Feral Hog Infestation

Due to the recent feral hog infestation on the District’s levee and in the Commonwealth subdivision, the District, along with neighboring Levee Improvement Districts, have installed a wild hog perimeter fence along our joint levee system.

However, we are still faced with a small group of hogs that remain stranded inside the perimeter. They are entering the Commonwealth subdivision on a regular basis and root up our R.O.W.s, landscape reserves, levee slopes, and residents’ yards.

The District is working with contractors to install an iron fence in the Stockbridge Pond green space. This additional fence will decrease access of feral hogs within the perimeter to the subdivision and protect the residents from hog damage and/or injuries.

The District also plans to install landscaping around the iron fence to maintain the aesthetics of the Commonwealth. Thank you for your cooperation.

Weather Advisory

Weather experts tell us that conditions in the Gulf are becoming more favorable for a disturbance to develop into a Tropical Depression or a Tropical Storm later this week. It’s still early to predict, but meteorologists believe landfall along the upper Texas coast is possible.

Regardless of what happens, expect heavy rainfall this week and remember to secure loose items around your homes, keep storm drains clear and avoid parking in the streets because roads are designed to hold water during severe storms.

We’re approaching the most active part of hurricane season, so plan now. Visit our Emergency Management website for helpful preparedness resources.
