THE BROWNSVILLE PUBLIC UTILITIES BOARD’S RESACA RESTORATION PROJECT IS CURRENTLY UNDERWAY.
This project is necessary because sediment, trash and other debris has built up over the years, impeding water flow in these waterways. The only way to return the resacas to their original depth is to dredge them. This BPUB Update comes from Dean Porter Park, and gives an overview of the ceremony held to unveil the Don’t Mess With Texas Water sign in Brownsville.
An IMS Model 5012 LP Versi-Dredge® is being used to clean up decades of pollution and sedimentation in Brownsville, Texas canals as part of a water clean up mission. After dredging the Cemetery Resaca, BPUB will move on to other Phase I sites, which include the Gladys Porter Zoo resacas and canals, Dean Porter Park Resaca, and the Resaca Boulevard Resaca.
