City of Harlingen - Drainage Improvements, Project List          


The City of Harlingen is committed to a continual effort to improve our drainage infrastructure because we recognize that it serves a critical function in assuring the health, welfare, and quality of life for our community. Drainage improvement projects often cost several hundred thousand dollars if not millions of dollars. The project development of a drainage improvement project involves engineering hydraulic studies, surveying, right-of-way verification or acquisition, engineering design of construction plans, contractor bid solicitation / award, and construction. This process can take several years.

Securing the funds for drainage improvement projects is one if not the biggest component in our efforts to improving our drainage infrastructure. Over the past twelve (12) years, the City of Harlingen has secured funding for twenty-eight (28) projects with a total value of $30,134,195. The City has been able to do this by leveraging local city funds to secure federal funded grants through FEMA, TWDB, and through partnerships with IBWC, Drainage District(s), and Irrigation District(s). As shown on the table below,

$20,855,552 has or will come from sources outside of the City. Securing federal grant funds is highly competitive, funds are many times in short supply, and require a lot of technical & administrative documentation. FEMA is currently evaluating our funding applications for an additional five (5) drainage improvements. See listing below under the “Coming Soon Drainage Improvement Projects.”
