Blackmon, Cameron County Judge Eddie Trevino, Hidalgo County Commissioners Ellie Torres and David Fuentes, Cameron County Commissioner David Garza, and Willacy County Commissioner Eddy Gonzales, convened at the Cameron County Courthouse to sign the Lower Rio Grande Valley (LGRV) Watershed Assessment Feasibility Cost Share Agreement, December 12. The assessment establishes a partnership and shared vision in future flood mitigation efforts for the region. The assessment will provide comprehensive and strategic evaluations and analyses including a variety of political, geographic, physical, institutional, and technical considerations in future projects to address the flooding issues in the LRGV area. The cost share agreement caps the study at $3 million with 75% of the cost incurred by the federal government and the remaining 25% covered by the non-federal entities.
