Bowie Drainage Repair Cost Exceeds $2M

Bowie residents have been hammered with high rates--from water to electric--and they could be stuck with another hike to fund a drainage project.

Residents may not like the idea of that but neighbors who live along the Brushy Creek Tributary say the repairs need to get done. For one, portions of the road are collapsed. It also causes massive flooding to the area.

KFDX was there in 2016 after the torrential rains and saw homes and even cars flooded near the ditch. Today city manager Ricky Tow says they're close to starting the project but they have to get funding first.

"We're going through the process of trying to find funding," Tow said. "If there's any grant funds or any other cost sharing scenarios out there. We're reaching out to our state reps. to see if they know of any avenues."

Tow says they'll have all their applications sent in by July. After seeing how much they recieve, they'll start preparing the projects finances.
