Debris Management and Monitoring

Our Approach

Tidal Basin specializes in debris management operations to help prepare for, respond to, and recover from disasters when they strike.

Our team provides a total solution approach – we unite disaster debris monitoring and FEMA portions of disaster recovery into one financial recovery strategy. Communities require a team with experience in the development, drafting and revision of comprehensive debris management plans to ensure documents conform to the proper standards. We provide extensive experience in the development of comprehensive all-hazards Debris Management Plans, aligning with FEMA standards to ensure efficient and effective community preparation and debris removal operations.

Tidal Basin assigned a uniquely-qualified project management team with extensive, existing knowledge of our region to this initiative. Their knowledge and experience with developing products that close gaps and are responsive to stakeholder needs was evident throughout the project. Tidal Basin was effective at confirming the need/project scope at the outset of the project. The stakeholder working group sessions that were facilitated by Tidal Basin revealed a more nuanced planning need (a coordination tool instead of an operational response plan), and Tidal Basin quickly adapted to this shift in project scope. Despite this change, Tidal Basin was able to provide an end-product that exceeded our expectations. I found the team to be particularly responsive to communications (email/phone) and well-suited to elicit difficult/nebulous information from the planning stakeholders and translate that into a written product. Tidal Basin always exhibited great customer service throughout the project and I highly recommend Tidal Basin without reservation. In fact, I have used them multiple times!

The City of Key West hired Tidal Basin shortly after Hurricane Irma struck the Florida Keys in September 2017 to assist with maximizing our financial recovery...They managed our funding from assessment through to closeout. The staff also effectively managed our insurance proceeds, thus avoiding duplication of benefits.

In total, Tidal Basin efficiently and effectively managed over $10 million in Public Assistance grant funding including over $100K in 406 Hazard Mitigation Program Measures, to harden City facilities and mitigate against future damage. I strongly recommend the services of Tidal Basin. They are professional, thoughtful, and extremely knowledgeable. They handled the City's financial recovery flawlessly which minimized disruptions to the City's staff allowing them to keep focus on their daily responsibilities.

Severe storms dumped massive amounts of rain in the Southern Tier of New York State in the summer of 2006, resulting in widespread flooding. 

When Hurricane Katrina struck, bringing with it widespread flooding and damage, the City of Slidell took the brunt of the storm. Located just 30 miles north of New Orleans, the two cities were both hit full-force by the destructive power of the hurricane. Unfortunately for Slidell, the nation first focused on the recovery of New Orleans. The City of Slidell didn't begin its recovery operations under Adjusters International had been hired, bringing the expertise required to turn the recovery process around.
