Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) is currently seeking vendors to assist Texas counties along the southeastern coast with cleanup efforts as a result of Hurricane Harvey. Although we are still assessing many of the damaged areas, we are still unable to access some of TPWD properties.
We anticipate the cleanup efforts to be extensive. At this time TPWD is gathering a list of vendors that are ready, willing and able to assist in the impacted areas. We have identified the following as some of the efforts in which we will need assistance: Hazardous Removal, Demolition, Hazard Tree Removal, Debris Cleanup, Sewage and/or Sludge Removal, Water and Wastewater Treatment and Mold.
While we are awaiting a more in-depth list of expected services from our response team, if you are interested in assisting, we are asking that you please provide your firms qualifications, services that you are able to perform, area(s) of Texas that you are available, and your current certificate of liability insurance.
We expect the clean-up process to take weeks or even months, beginning with the most damaged areas. Most of the restaurants in these areas are probably damaged and the lodging is either occupied with evacuees and/or damaged due to Hurricane Harvey. Vendors will need to think of lodging and other food sources if willing to assist.
At this time, there are over 55 counties in need of assistance and recovery efforts, which include either some or all of the following that we will be soliciting:
