Animals Characters Classic. Souvenirs Travel Accessories. Look Inside. View Large Image. Set in the Louisiana lands of magnolias, weeping willows, and Spanish moss, this is the heartbreaking, yet inspirational true sto Army Corps of Engineers, in association with the Harris County Flood Control District, began an extensive program of reservoir construction, removal of stream-bank vegetation, and channelization to reduce Houston's flooding risk. In recent years, extensive suburban development upstream of the reservoirs has stressed this flood control infrastructure.
Since , Buffalo Bayou has experienced three major flooding events, including Hurricane Harvey in , the Tax Day floods of and a flood on May 26, The bayou supports a significant population of catfish , sunfish , gars, and bass for recreational fishing. It includes a population of birds and hosts the popular Waugh Bat Bridge.
Alligators have also been spotted along the bayou. Buffalo Bayou is legally navigable by paddle craft from its source in Katy to the western end of the Ship Channel upstream of Wayside Drive. A majority of paddle trips generally take place between Highway 6 and Shepherd Drive section, with main focus on the section from Briarbend Park to Woodway and to Downtown Houston, generally because of ease of access and length of the trail. The section from Highway 6 to Beltway 8 is known for downed trees, which require frequent portages.
The section from Beltway 8 to Briarbend Park is generally kept clear of blockages by the Harris County Flood Control District; however, there are several gravel bar hazards to negotiate during normal water flows. The section from Briarbend Park to Woodway is similarly kept clear, although there may be trees across the waterway immediately after storms.
As an urban waterway, Buffalo Bayou is especially vulnerable to low water quality. The condition of the bayou's waters has long been a topic of concern in Houston. During the 19th century, the river essentially functioned as both an open sanitary sewer and a source of drinking water. Today, the bayou still faces significant environmental challenges, including elevated levels of indicator bacteria , low oxygen saturation , and heavy nutrient pollution. In February , it was reported that 64, gallons of jet fuel leaked into the bayou via the nearby Hobby Airport.
