Description

PROJECT REPORT NO. 5-0619-0

The Valley Gravity Project plan has been formulated to furnish an adequate and dependable irrigation water supply for fertile and productive area in the Lower Rio Grande Valley, Texas. It would also provide drainage works, which would remove the threat of destruction of the economy of the area due to effects of a high water table and salt accumulations. The project works would permit generation of the maximum practicable amount of electrical energy and at the same time the plan would free for industrial and other development of the valley electrical energy which otherwise would be required to operate irrigation pumping plant. Other incidental benefits include fish and wildlife conservation, recreation and flood control.
