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.

What’s next?
Engineering consultants, surveyors, geotechnical engineers, environmental engineers and members of Harris County Engineering and Harris County Precincts will conduct field studies.
