After repeated failed negotiation and mediation attempts to reach settlement with Jones & Carter, the former District engineers, on Thursday June 21, the District filed a lawsuit in Fort Bend County Courts to recover damages related to flooding during Hurricane Harvey. On Wednesday, June 20, the District received notice that a group of homeowners also filed suit against Jones & Carter. You may find copies of the lawsuit petitions online at the Fort Bend County District Clerk website.
Members of EDP and Odyssey Engineering Group participated in the Levee Table Top Exercise hosted by Fort Bend County Office of Emergency Management. The exercise was used as an opportunity to discuss the events that led up to Hurricane Harvey and learn from the efforts of those on a County-wide level. Fort Bend County and those in attendance walked through potential scenarios related to heavy rain events and high water levels in the Brazos River. EDP and Odyssey will take the ideas discussed and incorporate them into the Emergency Action Plan for Pecan Grove MUD.
