The County of El Paso's proposal is to replace the existing water distribution system that serves residents of the Vista del Este Colonia. The existing system is plagued by line breaks and joint leaks leading to constant maintenance issues. Additionally the system is also located in alleyways with limited access, the new system will be in the street right of way. Due to the system's age it no longer complies with the minimum standards for public water systems as set by the Texas commission for Environmental Quality (TCEQ). The new system will comply with current TCEQ requirements and will benefit a total of 340 home/ 1067 people.
