  • The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) is collecting debris from storm-damaged neighborhoods and removing debris piles from temporary storage sites within New York City under three recently awarded task orders totaling $92 million. Assigned by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to execute the Hurricane Sandy debris mission, USACE awarded the work to Burlingame, Calif.-based Environmental Chemical Corporation (ECC) International LCC. Local subcontractors hired by ECC are performing most of the work. 

USACE-contracted crews are working closely with the New York City Department of Sanitation to supplement the clean-up efforts. 

"We're augmenting city sanitation crews," said Col. Trey Jordan, commander of the USACE New York Recovery Field Office in Queens, which was established in early November to manage the debris removal mission and other FEMA-assigned work in New York. "They're telling us where they need help and we're concentrating our resources on those areas." 

USACE is focusing on removing debris from Rockaway Peninsula neighborhoods as well as trucking and barging debris from collection points in Queens and on Staten Island, NY. Crews are working 24 hours a day, seven days a week to help speed the recovery.

USACE is seeking to identify more local contractors and vendors that may qualify for federal work. Business owners interested in supporting the New York debris removal mission may contact Master Sgt. Charles Mason at 718-888-3185 or Charles.W.Mason@usace.army.mil. For more information about Hurricane Sandy business opportunities, please visit: https://apps.swf.usace.army.mil/Hurricane/Business 

Under the National Response Framework and in support of FEMA, USACE is the responsible agency for Emergency Support Function 3, Public Works and Engineering. FEMA mission assignments to USACE have included debris management, emergency infrastructure assessment, emergency temporary power, bottled water, critical public facility assessments, and regional activation.

  • The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is working to clear storm debris from 
New York's Fire Island as part of the federal government's Hurricane 
Sandy recovery efforts. Debris removal began March 2, 2013, and is 
scheduled to be complete by March 31, 2013. Removal operations 
throughout the remote barrier island - complicated by narrow spaces, 
restricted beach access and winter weather - have been carefully 
coordinated with local, state and other federal agencies to minimize 
disturbance to residents and the island's sensitive ecosystem.
