The District employs nearly 100 field personnel and owns a fleet of over 300 pieces of various construction and maintenance equipment. We perform approximately 90% of all infrastructural maintenance and new construction projects in-house utilizing our own workforce and equipment. District projects performed using independent contractors are generally selected following a competitive bidding process. District personnel oversee independent contractors and manage the overall construction process from pre-construction planning to project completion ensuring the final deliverables are in strict compliance with the design specifications.
Our construction projects are classified into three main categories: Capital Projects, Maintenance Projects, and Grant Projects. Capital projects are large-scale projects resulting in the expanded capacity or operational capabilities of the District’s drainage system. Maintenance projects are necessary to repair or restore a component or aspect of the drainage system to its designed condition or function. Grant projects are typically high-value projects intended to address disaster recovery and/or mitigation of future flood damages to which a state or federal agency has contributed funding.
