TEXAS GLO FLOOD AND DRAINAGE IMPROVEMENTS PROJECT Hidalgo County, Texas
|Funding Source:||Texas General Land Office|
Urban County Program
427 E. Duranta Ave, Suite 107
Similar to other disaster areas identified as eligible with the Hurricane Relief Funds the County of Hidalgo identified Bernal Heights #1, #2, and Bar #3 as an area prone to flash floods due to non-existent storm drain facilities.
This ongoing project is the result of significant flooding that occurred within the identified communities due to a topographic high point elevation located north of the communities and a naturally occurring low point within the community. The communities were developed with no storm sewer infrastructure or outfall. The new storm drain network, consisting of over 4,000 linear feet of 36 inch and 48-inch steel polymer coated storm pipe and a 1250 linear foot long by 130 foot wide ditch excavation design to retain the runoff previously held within the communities.
