Clear Lake turns ex-golf course into detention area to drain floodwater
Coincidentally, a golf course nestled inside a master-planned community built more than a half-century ago has become the solution to an increasingly tough drainage issue as the southeastern tip of Harris County. Over the last decade, the Exploration Green effort prevailed over lawsuits and opposition from residents concerned about turning the golf course into a "swamp." After the excavation and grading for detention is completed, the conservancy - with its volunteers and donors - picks up the responsibility of implementing amenities such as 12 miles of hike-and-bike trails, planting vegetation and ongoing park maintenance. Native grasses and trees are being cultivated in the conservancy's wetland plants nursery, which is a partnership with entities including Texas A&M University's AgriLife Extension, the Galveston Bay Foundation and the Texas Coastal Watershed program. The subterranean sprinkler system that kept the golf greens lush will keep the trees on the upper edges thriving. Weary added that most of the ideas for improvements came from residents who attended town hall meetings and that pride in the project has grown as people see progress.
