Raymondville Drain

The Raymondville Drain will create a second outfall from Hidalgo County to the Gulf of Mexico, creating tremendous flood relief for the entire county. The project, once constructed, will offer storm water management by providing a new channel that connects to existing channels from Edinburg Lake (in Hidalgo County) to the Laguna Madre (in Willacy County). The Raymondville Drain Project will also provide economic and environmental benefits by creating jobs, infrastructure, resiliency, restoration, conservation and preservation of habitat among many other benefits.
