Hurricane Harvey

HAR Provides Useful Information For Homeowners After Harvey

Information from HAR to help in the recovery process of damaged homes.

Dwight Chandler walks through his devastated home in Highlands, Texas on Thursday, Aug. 31, 2017. Chandler, 62, said he worried whether Harvey's floodwaters had also washed in pollution from the old acid pits that were designated as a U.S. EPA Superfund site just a couple blocks from his home. The Highlands Acid Pit site near Chandler's home was filled in the 1950s with toxic sludge and sulfuric acid from oil and gas operations.
