A massive long-term project undertaken with PWA funding was the construction of a waterworks and irrigation system in Willacy County, TX.
The $4,853,000 PWA allotment aided nearly 75,000 combined acres in Willacy and Hidalgo counties. The work included “a pumping plant, settling basin, canals and distributing pipe line.” (The Orange Leader)
