VIDEO: GIS Plays Important Role in Resacas Restoration

The Brownsville Public Utilities Board’s Resaca Restoration Project is currently underway.

This project is necessary because sediment, tires, trash, and other debris has built up over the years, impeding water flow in these waterways. The only way to return the resacas to their original depth is to dredge them.

The Geographic Information Systems Department is an integral part of the Resaca Restoration Project. This week’s BPUB Update provides a glimpse of how GIS records resaca depths.
