Cameron County residents have voted for a new drainage district.

Drainage District No. Six will now cover both La Feria and Santa Rosa; the district passed with 84% of the votes.

La Feria and Santa Rosa will go from an irrigation district, meaning water goes into the area for agriculture, to a drainage district, which means water will be pumped out. 

The next steps for the newly approved drainage district include appointing a team to manage it.
