Small Business Loans - For information on applying for a disaster recovery loan go to the Small Business Administration. These loans are low interest and are available to homeowners, renters, businesses of all sizes and private nonprofits that were affected by the Harvey https://www.sba.gov/disaster-assistance.

Water/wastewater – The city’s water supply was never compromised during this flooding event. There were some isolated events with some sewer backups. Residents were asked to limit the use of water/wastewater – such as limiting the washing of clothes, flushing toilets, taking long showers, etc. There are no restrictions in place. The wastewater system is working at its full capacity.


Debris Removal - (Updated 10/18/17) Harvey related residential storm debris within the city limits of the City of Alvin has been collected.  The City’s storm debris removal contractor, Crowder Gulf Joint Venture, Inc. picked up the last few loads of storm debris on the morning of October 17, 2017. 


Crowder Gulf specializes in disaster debris recovery services that comply with Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) regulations, ensuring city reimbursement for the services. 


The contractor made several passes through the City in an effort to pick up storm debris.


Any heavy trash currently set at the curb for collection will be picked up on the customers regularly scheduled heavy trash collection day.  Please remember that heavy trash set out for collection should not exceed six (6) cubic yards.  Anything over six (6) cubic yards will require a special collection by the City’s waste collection contractor, Waste Connections, and may be subject to additional collection fees.  Six (6) cubic yards is comparable in size to that of a Volkswagen Beetle/Bug car.


Now that Crowder Gulf has completed their storm debris collection, any storm related or construction debris removed from a residence will need to be removed by the homeowner or construction contractor. Waste Connections, is not responsible for the collection of storm or construction debris.


The City would like to thank residents for their cooperation and patience throughout this process.
