About Recovery and Resiliency Division
The Harris County Engineering Department (HCED), 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. Drainage projects managed by HCED improve the internal drainage systems and related infrastructure that convey stormwater from neighborhoods to major drainage channels or bayous supported by the Harris County Flood Control District. Internal drainage systems include underground storm sewer systems and roadside ditches and are typically the responsibility of the underlying municipality, utility district, and/or Harris County in unincorporated areas.
HCED develops drainage improvement recommendations, conducts community outreach meetings, and prepares preliminary engineering reports to support the advancement of these projects toward final design and construction.
