The applicant proposes to construct an earthen FWRS, on Simon Creek, for flood prevention in the Walnut Bayou watershed, in accordance with the Lower Bayou Watershed Work Plan. Approximately 15,500 cys of clay would be discharged during construction of the FWRS.  The FWRS is intended to reduce flooding, streambank erosion, and sediment deposition to the downstream floodplain.  There would be a 92 acre conservation pool associated with this structure, which would experience sediment retention.
