The Harris County Engineering Department, with direction from the Commissioners Court, established the Recovery and Resiliency Division (RRD) in 2018 to oversee engineering projects dedicated to the reduction of flood risk following Hurricane Harvey. The Division is one of eight within the Harris County Engineering Department, which executes the planning, study, design and construction of various infrastructure, parks and other architectural and maintenance projects in accordance with engineering design standards and specifications.



The Harris County Engineering Department-Recovery and Resiliency Division is moving from the Planning Phase of the stormwater subdivision drainage projects into the Study and Design Phases. The Planning Phase included assessing the existing conditions of the subdivisions, researching and modeling potential drainage improvements, community engagement meetings, gathering information from the community, and bringing the recommended improvements before Commissioners Court for approval. Project status updates will be posted online and through the Division’s social media channels.
