AMARILLO, Texas (KFDA) - The project to control flooding in northeast Amarillo is nearing an end after 10 years and $17 million.
Kyle Schiederjan, director of Capital Projects and Development Engineering, told the Amarillo City Council today that the project in Martin Road Park needs more than another $350,000 for drainage pipe and a water well.
The work has significantly reduced the flood plain area over 10 years.
Pumps move flood water to Thompson Park, where it leaves the city in Amarillo Creek.
