Flooding is always an issue during the monsoon season. New construction projects are aimed at controlling the storm water.
El Paso Water Utilities has several projects in progress. One is on Altura Drive. New drains have been added to help funnel more water in the Boone Street basin. That basin empties into the Rio Grande. Neighbors say they're happy with the results. "We've had two big rains and the grating for the storm water has really helped," said neighbor Mike Romero.
Similar construction is going on on Hastings Street. The work is expected to be complete in a few weeks.
