HOUS­TON – More than a year af­ter Hur­ri­cane Har­vey’s de­struc­tive flood­ing, the task of re­mov­ing downed trees and other storm de­bris that had blocked the Hous­ton-area’s 22 wa­ter­sheds is fin­ished.

The Harris County Flood Con­trol District said Fri­day that it’s re­moved about 40,000 tons of de­bris since Har­vey flooded Hous­ton in Au­gust 2017.

The flood con­trol district has spent $8.9 mil­lion on the cleanup.
