Vince Bayou, also known as Vince's Bayou, is a river that rises in southeast Harris County, Texas and runs northwest, through Pasadena and the city of South Houston, for a total of 19 channel miles (which include the reach of one minor tributary)[1] to its mouth on the Houston Ship Channel (the lower reaches of Buffalo Bayou).[2]

Very little wildlife habitat exists, and the estimated population within the Vince Bayou watershed is just under 89,000 persons.[3]

During Tropical Storm Allison, in June of the 2001 Atlantic hurricane season, the watershed received in excess of 13 inches (330 mm) of rain in a 24-hour period, resulting in bayou channel overbanking that flooded 1,500 homes in a 4.1-square-mile (11 km2) area.[1]
