EDINBURG, Texas – Hidalgo County Precinct 4 has completed stormwater improvements to the Hoehn Subdivision which commenced in October 2022 at the cross streets of Ebony St. and Ivory St. in Edinburg, TX. 

Funding of the projects came at $739,000 with no additional cost to taxpayers. The Hoehn Project was the fourth stormwater drainage improvement by Commissioner Ellie Torres and part of the Hidalgo County ARPA Program’s mission to address flooding and water inequities.

The Hoehn Stormwater Management improvements will manage and reduce stormwater for the project area located at the southeast corner of Monte Cristo Road and Hoehn Road. The scope of work consisted of a pipe network with inlet improvements and roadside ditch grading with an ultimate outfall into the J-08 Drain system.

“Since 2019, I have met and listened to the resident’s issues and I have worked to address and implement various initiatives and projects to help mitigate flooding in the area of the Hoehn Subdivision,” said Commissioner Ellie Torres. “Now that the project is finished, I ask for the cooperation of the residents to maintain the ditches clear and free of debris to ensure these improvements manage flooding issues.”

Upon the project’s final inspection, it was observed that alterations were made to the ditches in front of some properties.  Precinct 4 has made efforts to reach out to these property owners.  It is imperative that residents allow the project to remain intact to avoid any potential hindrance to the water flow.  This includes maintaining the area clean and clear of debris or large objects. It is very important that they do not alter the ditches in any way in order to maintain the design engineered for this project.

“Any modifications to the original design such as adding unauthorized driveway culverts with an inadequate pipe size and or dirt fill within the roadside swale will obstruct the flow of stormwater which may lead to standing water and potential localized flooding”, said Omar Anzaldua, Jr., Assistant General Manager, P.E.
