No Breach in Levee

We are aware of inaccurate rumors/social media posts regarding a breach in the Riverstone levee system.  The LID’s operators have confirmed that the levee remains intact, and there is NO breach in the levee at this time. 

We are aware of accumulated rainwater in homes in the Riverstone neighborhoods south of Hagerson Rd.  All pumps at the Steep Bank Creek pump station are fully operational at this time and working as best as they can to get these areas drained.  

Please assist us in sharing this information with your neighbors.

 The levee system operators and engineers continue their efforts to pump internal rainwater out of Riverstone as quickly as possible.
