Background and Discussion:

The Emergency Response for Storm Debris Removal and Disposal for the Harris County Flood Control District provides complete debris removal and disposal services for the District after a large debris generating event such as a tropical storm, hurricane, or flood. 

 

Expected Impact:

Debris quantities generated after a large-scale natural disaster are in excess of the quantities that can be handled by our existing full-service contracts and In-house labor resources.  The debris is often located in the bottoms of flood control channels and can only be accessed by a water-based operation.  The Emergency Response for Storm Debris Removal and Disposal contract allows for the activation of these services after a large-scale natural disaster to ensure the timely removal of debris and the return of our flood control infrastructure to full operation. 

 

Alternative Options:

An alternative option would be to eliminate the contract and have the services limited to in-house and              full-service contract operational capacities.  This would slow the debris removal timeline considerably and would also likely result in a higher overall cost to the County.
