Buda Impacts by Harvey
- Public Works cleared trees and branches from the roadway. Our parks employees are clearing debris at the City's parks. Two Heritage trees went down in front of the Stagecoach House and Visitor Center. We are in the process of determining if either tree can be salvaged.
- The drainage channel at the Municipal Complex worked properly and during the most intense part of the storm there was about two inches of water running through the channel. The Public Safety and City Hall/Library building did not suffer any damage. The tree that was relocated on the site is doing fine and was not affected by the storm. A skeleton crew is on site today and full operations will resume tomorrow (Aug. 29).
- Our lift stations around the City functioned properly and we had no problems.
- The Onion Creek Village Apartments had to be evacuated after the water came up over FM 2770. The water did not get into any of the apartments and has since receded.
