As a result of the February 2, 2002, election, Clear Creek Drainage District and Galveston County Drainage District Number Three merged, forming Galveston County Consolidated Drainage District (the District). We believe this merger will allow us to better serve the citizens of the formerly independent districts. See District map (District boundary map in PDF format.)

The District's mission remains the same: to reduce the probability of flooding throughout the Friendswood area by improving drainage while preserving the natural beauty of the creeks, resulting in increased safety, higher quality of life and an environment fostering economic growth.

Galveston County Consolidated Drainage District's jurisdiction encompasses more than 20 square miles of northern Galveston County. The District maintains more than 80 miles of creeks, ditches, and bayous, as well as subdivision detention ponds and other joint projects and works closely with the City of Friendswood, neighboring drainage districts, developers and contractors. The District is governed by Chapter 49 and Chapter 56 of the Texas Water Code.
