5403 Westhiemer Road, Houston, TX 77056
Join TSPE March 14th 2017 as Mr. Russ Poppe, Executive Director for the Harris County Flood Control District in Houston, will discuss "Flood Control Projects and there benefits"
Under his direction, the District carries out its mission to devise countywide flood damage reduction plans, implement those plans, and maintain the infrastructure. That mission is executed in the third most populated county in the United States, with a population in excess of 4.5 million, which includes the City of Houston, the nation’s fourth largest city. The District has jurisdiction over the primary stormwater facilities in the county, which consist of about 1,500 channels, totaling 2,500 miles in length, as well as more than 60 regional stormwater detention basins and a 2.5-square mile wetlands mitigation bank.
After graduating from Texas A&M University in 1999 with a civil engineering degree, Russ successfully practiced engineering in the private industry before joining the Harris County Architecture and Engineering Department in September 2005. Since then, Russ has held various leadership positions within both Harris County and Harris County Flood Control District, with project responsibilities spanning from roadway, park, and water quality projects, to multi-story buildings and complex flood risk reduction projects in highly urbanized areas. His tenure in the public service sector includes a collective project portfolio that exceeds $1 billion in value on very diverse projects that has allowed him to gain a unique skill set and develop a solid track record focused on producing efficient and effective public projects.
