Pct. 1 Drainage Bond Project #24 Groundbreaking

Wednesday, April 24, 2019

Hidalgo County Precinct 1 Commissioner David L. Fuentes will join with Drainage District 1 General Manager Raul E. Sesin and City of Weslaco Mayor David Suarez in breaking ground on a critical drainage project at 10 a.m. Wednesday on Mile 9 Road and FM 1015 in Weslaco. “This project was identified as one of the most important in order to facilitate drainage during flood events in Weslaco,” said Fuentes. “This couldn’t come at a better time as we prepare for Hurricane Season in June.” Funding for the project was included in the $190 million Drainage District bond approved by voters in November. The total project cost is estimated at $10.6 million and will begin with the construction of detention ponds for the Las Brisas and Chapa subdivisions and Onyx Drive neighborhoods, which were among the most impacted during the 500-year rain event in June 2018.
