FEMA Approves More Than $2 Million to Improve Drainage in McAllen
MCALLEN – The Federal Emergency Management Agency has approved funding of more than $2 million for the City of McAllen to improve the drainage systems.
June’s flooding proved a 30-year-old drainage system is in need of an update.
The funds will go to the ‘Westway Heights Drainage Project’ to help a neighborhood prone to major flooding.
“It's actually one of the worst drainage problems that we got,” says City Manager Roy Rodriguez.
KRGV’s Sierra Pizarro spoke with a resident who lives in the neighborhood and believes this project will make a dramatic impact.
