Video Shows Water Utility's Plan to Curb I-10 Flooding

Flooding on Interstate 10 in Central El Paso has been an issue for many years during heavy rains. Storm water has caused the freeway to close completely, as many residents can attest. Now, El Paso Water Utilities is educating the public about its plan to fix the problem in a new video posted to its YouTube channel.

The video's description states: "A multi-year project has improved drainage in Central El Paso, including the critical I-10 area between Cotton and Copia Streets. Subsequent phases will provide additional ponds to capture runoff from the mountains and pipes and pumps to move water to the Rio Grande."
