Project Case Study:
Hollaway supports the Sabine Pass to Galveston Bay Program in several ways, including:
- Program-wide, strategic communications and outreach services provided directly to the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE)
- Environmental services provided to the Gulf Coast Protection District (GCPD), the nonfederal sponsor, in the delivery of the Orange County Coastal Storm Risk Management Project
To increase the resiliency of the upper Texas coast, the Sabine Pass to Galveston Bay Coastal Storm Risk Management Program (S2G Program) has been established by the USACE and its non-Federal sponsors to deliver cost-effective and ecologically-sound solutions to reduce risk from coastal storm surge to communities, businesses, and industry in Orange, Jefferson, and Brazoria Counties.
The S2G Program is comprised of three unique projects: improvements to existing hurricane flood protection systems in the Freeport area (the Freeport Coastal Strom Risk Management Project) and the Port Arthur area (the Port Arthur Coastal Storm Risk Management Project), and the construction of a new coastal storm risk management system in Orange County (the Orange County Coastal Storm Risk Management Project).
Communications Services: Program-wide Outreach
Hollaway supports the USACE by planning and facilitating in-person and virtual community engagement meetings for each of the S2G CSRM Program’s three projects (Freeport and Vicinity CSRM Project; Port Arthur and Vicinity CSRM Project; Orange County CSRM Project). Additionally, Hollaway supports the S2G CSRM program in the development of project materials, including project brochures, informational project videos, as well as graphics and 3-D visualizations.
Environmental Services: Orange County Coastal Storm Risk Management Project
Hollaway serves the Gulf Coast Protection District, as the non-federal sponsor, in provision of environmental consulting services, including NEPA documentation, wetlands and waters of the U.S. surveys and permitting coordination, ESA compliance, regulatory agency coordination, and mitigation planning, to ensure that the design of the Sabine Pass to Galveston Bay Orange County Coastal Storm Risk Management Project meets and exceeds all applicable environmental regulations and considerations. As part of this work, Hollaway routinely coordinates with the USACE, as well as the various project partners, to advance this precedent-setting, 25-mile coastal storm surge risk management system in Orange County.
