Harris County Engineering Department is requesting that unincorporated county
residents report their residential flood damage due to the devastation from Hurricane
Harvey. Completing this form will help us issue permits and coordinate the debris
efforts. Please visit www.eng.hctx.net and click “Flood Recovery”.
To repair or rebuild, you need a permit. This is a FEMA requirement to ensure that flood
insurance is available to residents of Harris County. Your insurance and/or FEMA will
likely require seeing a copy of this permit to complete your claim.
If you live within the 100-year floodplain and we could not verify that your house’s slab
is above the 100-year floodplain elevation, we will need to do a free house inspection
prior to issuing a permit to rebuild. The inspection should take less than half an hour.
If you live outside the 100-year floodplain, please call the Harris County Residential
Debris and Damage Assessment Hotline at 713-274-3880 or email
HomeFlooding@hcpid.org to check on the status of your permit. Permits are being
mailed daily—your permit may be on the way! If your permit has been issued, you may
request an electronic version by calling the Hotline at 713-274-3880.
Residents who are in the process of removing debris from their homes should follow
separation instructions to help speed up the process and allow for safe operations.
Debris removal will be ongoing throughout unincorporated Harris County. Please be
patient and be prepared.
Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) will be picked up separately from the curbside.
Please separate ALL HHW (paint, fertilizer, gas, oil, batteries, etc.) from other debris piles.
If you have HHW, please call the Hotline at 713-274-3880.
For additional information about debris separation and debris removal, please call the
Harris County Residential Debris and Damage Assessment Hotline at 713-274-3880 or
