La Marque waterline improvements - $4,165,500
This project will improve water pressure, fire flow capacity, and water quality by replacing water lines, restoring asphalt surfaces, and installing fire hydrants.
Texas Land Commissioner Dawn Buckingham, M.D., announced the Texas General Land Office (GLO) approved $128,208,664 in regional mitigation funds for 19 federally eligible infrastructure projects to improve streets as well as water and drainage facilities in the cities of Aransas Pass, Coldspring, Corrigan, Dayton, Freeport, Hitchcock, Iowa Colony, Katy, La Marque, Palacios, Pearland, Richwood, Rosenberg, Shepherd, Texas City, and the counties of Jefferson, Liberty, and Waller. Through the Regional Mitigation Program, the GLO enabled local prioritization, which will have a tremendous impact across multiple regions.
“Locally-led prioritization of mitigation projects is important because it strengthens critical infrastructure and protects communities against the impacts of natural disasters,” Commissioner Buckingham said. “At the Texas General Land Office, we are not only helping those in need, but also supporting our communities as they grow.”
