MERCEDES - The Hidalgo and Cameron Counties Irrigation District No. 9 will unveil a new aqueduct facility that is expected to service municipal water supplies throughout the Mid-Valley.

The aqueduct is part of a $4.5 million project funded in part, about $1.25 million to be exact, by a North American Development Bank grant.

The new aqueduct, constructed by Quest Ventures Southwest, is located adjacent to the old facility on Expressway 83 and Ohio Ave. in Mercedes.

It measures 290 feet long and 26 feet wide and has a maximum capacity of 600 cubic feet per second, transporting 380 million gallons per day and amounting to an average annual flow that is estimated at 40,000 acre feet.
