Alamogordo getting US funding for flood-prevention projects

ALAMOGORDO, N.M. (AP) – Alamogordo will get nearly $10.5 million of federal funding to repair one flood-prevention channel and to finish building another.

The funding provided by the Army Corps of Engineers is for finishing construction of the McKinley Channel and for repairing the Alamogordo South Diversion Channel.

The waterways channel runoff from the Sacramento Mountains during rainstorms and help prevent downstream flooding in Alamogordo and the Tularosa Basin.

The funding was announced Wednesday by two members of the state’s congressional delegation, Sens. Tom Udall and Martin Heinrich. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
