The County is working toward developing and constructing a water distribution system located in the Hillcrest Center community in El Paso County (EPC), Texas. The community is approximately 20 miles east of downtown El Paso along Montana Boulevard and is approximately 12 miles north of the US/Mexico border. The community currently does not have access to a water distribution system, and residents haul water for their household needs. There are significant health concerns related to hauling water since it leads to significant opportunities for contamination from waterborne diseases. The proposed Project will construct a water distribution system owned by El Paso county, and supplied by El Paso Water, ensuring that the residents have access to a secure water supply in full compliance with TCEQ regulatory criteria. The project development will include planning, environmental documents, and design. Funding for the project’s construction will be provided by USDA-RD and the EPA’s BEIF program.
