Decades of Proven Experience
Debris Monitoring Services
Florida Department of Transportation
MCL has been the continuous debris monitoring provider for Florida Department of Transportation District 3 since 2014. In this role, we managed the debris aftermath of Hurricanes Hermine and Michael. Our efforts after Hurricane Michael involved the swift hiring of over 1,200 personnel and had a contractor budget of more than $400 milion. The tremendous debris volumes (over 16 million in cubic yards), staff levels, recruitment abilities, and number of involved parties (stakeholders and contractors) led to this effort likely being one of the largest debris events in U.S. History.

As fiscal recovery agent, we have insured that Pasco County receives every eligible dollar available to them following an emergency event. We have coordinated with FEMA and Pasco County to establish oversight standards, organize debris removal and emergency protective measures, and permanent repair projects. Currently, we are helping Pasco County in their COVID19 recovery efforts.
