After the first pass of debris pickup, the County has asked residents to quickly move any remaining debris (i.e. anything in driveways, front lawns) towards the curb (between the curb and the sidewalk). Any debris left on private property (past the sidewalk) will not be picked up. The debris trucks will make multiple passes to pick up debris located between the curb and the sidewalk, but once trucks have completed pickup of debris in the neighborhood, they may not be able to return for several weeks. If you return home and debris trucks have made an initial pass of your property, please attempt to move any remaining debris toward the curb that same day or night.
Fort Bend County has just announced the bagged debris has now been APPROVED for pickup. Please note, the County will not be allowed to pick up household garbage – so please attempt to keep bagged debris separate from your regular household garbage, which should be set out in containers or separate bags for regular Tuesday/Friday pickup.
The Riverstone LIDs will conduct an informational session on Monday, September 18, 2017, at 6:00 p.m. at Elkins High School in the auditorium. Although we had hoped to hold the meeting this week, for the benefit of the individuals who are still working through clean up and recovery, the meeting was postponed to allow for everyone to have adequate time to make arrangements to attend the meeting.
During this meeting, we will provide an overview of the LID organization, the drainage/levee system, and the emergency response operations. We will also answer many of the questions we have received. Additional questions can be submitted to the LIDs using the Contact Us tab in the website by Wednesday, September 13, 2017.
This will be the first meeting to review what we know now. As we move forward, the LIDs will coordinate a complete and in-depth After Action Review (“AAR”) and will report to residents the outcome of the AAR.
We look forward to meeting with you soon.
The first pass of debris removal is scheduled for tomorrow (Thursday). Please move cars out of the neighborhood streets. Remember, the first pass will only pick up certain type of debris (tentatively household construction material). The County will come back to pick up additional types of debris in subsequent passes.
