Drainage Project Meeting Ends in Disappointment for Some Edinburg Residents
EDINBURG – An Hidalgo County project meant to solve one issue is now creating another.
Nearly 20 residents from a North Edinburg colonia gathered at a meeting in hopes to hear a solution.
Neighbors find themselves filling in the washed away soil with their own dirt.
Construction on the drainage project started more than a month ago; it’s part of the Hidalgo County District 1 project.
Officials say it’s an area prone to flooding.
The drains will help, but the additions are causing injuries.
