Flood damage assessment and cleanup continues throughout the region. Property owners in Knoxville and Knox County are encouraged to contact 3-1-1 (or 865-215-4311) to report significant flood damage to their personal or commercial property. The call center is available M-F from 7 am to 5 pm.
A Crisis Cleanup Help Line is in place for people who need help with muck-out, debris removal, and home cleanup from the recent flooding. The Crisis Cleanup Help Line is a toll-free call to 1-833-556-2476. The number is staffed 24/7 and will be available through March 15, 2019. Callers should be ready to provide their name and contact information, and a brief description of their issue, to the relief agency representative who answers the Hot Line. If a relief agency representative is not available, callers can leave a message with their contact information to receive a return call.
Crisis Cleanup connects disaster survivors with trusted relief agencies. You will be placed on a list that can be accessed by relief agencies, but your information will not be accessible to the public. You can find additional information about Crisis Cleanup here: www.crisiscleanup.org. Registering with Crisis Cleanup does not guarantee help, but it will make your needs known to relief organizations providing assistance in our community, and representatives of those organizations will contact you directly if they are able to assist. This is the best way to get assistance with cleanup and damage that you are not able to address yourself.
The mission of stormwater compliance is to enhance the quality of life for Knox County citizens through education, service and management of water resources.
