FHWA and State Funded Debris Removal Monitoring Services
April 4, 2022, to June 3, 2022
- Vegetative and C&D Debris Removal
On March 21, 2022, several severe storms erupted late evening across central and north-central Texas. A tornado watched was in effect until 2:00 a.m. Non-stop lightening, heavy rain, hail, and high winds ran through part of Texas causing widespread power outages, flooding, roof damage, and downed trees. Following the storms, and through our Master Service Agreement with the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), CDR Emergency Management was activated to provide monitoring services for debris removal operations in several counties impacted by the severe weather event.
- TxDOT Lufkin District included the counties of Houston and Nacogdoches.
- TxDOT Tyler District included Rusk County.
- Through the State of Texas Assistance Request (STAR) system, the impacted counties requested State assistance for debris removal on county, city, and State maintained roads. Debris removal and monitoring operations were State funded.
- Monitored the removal of 89,661 cubic yards of vegetative and C&D debris.
