Hurricane Florence Disaster Recovery

City of Bern, NC

TRC was chosen by the city of Bern, NC in 2018 to manage drainage network repairs after Hurricane Florence devastated the area. We performed a comprehensive assessment of the city’s stormwater infrastructure using our in-house developed inspection app, during which we identified permanent damage and submitted inspection reports for FEMA approval. We then prepared specifications for repairs on ten drainage basins across the city, secured project permitting, managed bidding, and provided construction administration. Our work has so far helped the city repair two drainage basins and complete an additional emergency repair, with construction on the remaining basins ongoing.

Tropical Storm Fred Damage Repairs

Haywood, Transylvania and Buncombe Counties, NC

Tropical Storm Fred devastated western North Carolina and caused widespread flooding in the region. TRC was selected in 2021 to inspect and assess flood damage to private residential property accesses throughout Haywood, Transylvania and Buncombe Counties. We mobilized our dedicated survey crews and engineers to provide emergency support to the counties within 10 days of notice-to-proceed. Our team developed a specially tailored mobile GIS data acquisition survey, which allowed detailed data to be made available to stakeholders in real time. Within four weeks, we surveyed and completed data forms for 604 sites across the three counties. Our teams have since commenced design and construction phases for projects of critical and emergency need and have completed recovery tasks including bridge repairs, landslide mitigation and culvert replacements.

Water and Sewer Asset Inventory

Town of Walstonburg, NC

TRC has been a partner to Walstonburg, North Carolina’s water and sewer utilities supporting them to obtain “viability” status from the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality. We helped the town secure Asset Inventory Assessment funding from the NC DEQ’s Viability Utility Reserve, which was applied toward several services. Our team scanned and consolidated the town’s water and sewer mapping, performed GPS location of existing water infrastructure, and assessed items like fire hydrants and manholes to determine their condition and criticalness. We also assessed the mechanical, structural and electrical components of the town’s two lift stations.

Design of PFAS Removal System

Town of Maysville, North Carolina

TRC was contracted to design a PFAS removal system for the modification of an existing water treatment plant in Maysville, NC.
