sevenpart series explaining the upcoming million bond issue to be put before the public BYDANAOVERSTREET Staff writer New Braunfels City Council and a special committee studying drainage realise there are many areas where water runoff causes a But to keep the cost down on the if bond issue council and the cemnuttee had to determine drainage problem areas present the largest nuisance and Proposition five in the citys bond Issue election asks for million to upgrade and improve drainage I ystems in four areas of the The most expensive project is the StreetFredericksburg Road for million for culvert mi the addition of Wets and piping in the io which bus residential and park development the The drainage ditches are small and the streets carry a large portion of the storm engineers from Huston and Associates have deter mined that the old streets there are barely adequate to carry water which runs off adjacent These same streets are definitely unable to carry the additional runoff from the areas tp the north and west of North Walnut states the engineers foe development of the existing streets between North Walnut Avenue and Fredericksburg Road did not provide for the There is just no place for the water to go when it gets to this explained City Manager Joe Everything north and west of the intersection drains to this in If the drainage proposition culverts will be constructed along Wood
