Debris removal update in unincorporated Harrison County
The Harrison County Board of Supervisors has released an update on debris removal in unincorporated areas of the county following Hurricane Zeta.
The county estimates Zeta generated around 800,000 to one million cubic yards of damage and was the most destructive storm to hit Harrison County in 15 years.
Around 300,000 of those cubic yards have been collected so far in the past month since cleanup began.
Crowder Gulf is responsible for removal in these unincorporated areas with around 30 trucks out every day. They are on their first pass of the county collecting vegetative debris first, then will make more passes to collect construction and demolition debris.
All five cities in the county have hired their own contractors to facilitate cleanup within their own city limits.
