We should all be able to live with dignity in thriving communities. Only when our neighborhoods are safe from rain and flooding can our communities thrive.

Too often, though, inequalities and problems with our current drainage system result in chronic flooding that causes damage to homes, roads and public health. This undermines our trust in our drainage system.

We need a drainage system that works for all Hidalgo County residents, where county residents have a say, because when we tackle problems collectively, everyone benefits. When Hidalgo County allows colonia residents to have a voice in county drainage decisions, we will all benefit.

We need a drainage system that works for all Hidalgo County residents. We call on Hidalgo County to allow all residents, especially colonia residents, to have a say in County drainage decisions by:
- Re-establishing the Hidalgo County Drainage Advisory Committee and making it permanent;
- Modifying regulations to protect new developments against 25-year storm events; and
- Equitably channeling drainage resources toward the colonias in most need.
