Mandatory Evacuations Lifted

Good afternoon. This is CJ Snipes with An Emergency Management Update. The mandatory evacuations in the Lower Bois D’Arc and Fulbrook on Fulshear Creek areas will be lifted at 5:00 p.m. today, Thursday, Aug. 31.

The wastewater system in Fulbrook at Fulshear Creek has been repaired and is now functional.

We understand you want to get back and check on your homes which is why we are lifting the evacuation order. Homes that were inundated with flood water or sewer system backflow must be inspected before residents may move back in.

City building inspectors will provide those inspections free of charge, but will not be able to inspect every house before the evacuation order is lifted. You can return to your residence, but you can not stay if the homes had water or sewer backflow. Residents who need to have their homes inspected may email the City at

The overnight curfew will remain in effect. It is from 10:30 p.m. to 7 a.m. Fulshear Police will continue to closely patrol the city – please report any suspicious activity to the police.

Residential trash service will run on Saturday throughout the City; however, there are still streets that are not passable which may prevent the trucks from getting through. WCA will not allow their trucks to cross streets with water standing on them. Remember, this is residential trash pick up only; no recycling or debris pick up.

On behalf of Mayor Roberts, the City Council and myself; I want to personally thank all of our residents for your patience and understanding as we’ve faced an unprecedented natural disaster. I am exceptionally proud of this community for standing together and for reaching out to help those who suffered more than we did. Fulshear is truly a community of excellence!! Have a good evening and God Bless Fulshear!
