Background and Discussion:
The Office of the County Engineer continues to deliver projects to reduce the risk of flooding within subdivisions caused by ineffective stormwater drainage facilities in those subdivisions and improve mobility and community facilities. The WSP USA, Inc. on-call agreement is being utilized to provide staff augmentation services needed to deliver and support various subdivision drainage improvement projects in Precinct 2. Continuation of the use of staff augmentation services will allow the work to proceed without delay as scheduled.

Expected Impact:
Successful completion of these projects will help Harris County residents by reducing their risk of flooding within the subdivision and improving mobility and safety.

Alternative Options:
Commissioners Court could opt to hire permanent Harris County staff to complete the work, or the project delivery schedules could be adjusted to reduce the number of projects underway concurrently to allow current Harris County staff to complete the work.
