Federal money is helping rebuild flood-damaged levees near Presidio.

The United States section of the International Boundary and Water Commission has awarded a 6.3 million dollar contract for the work.

Levees around Presidio were damaged by the swollen Rio Grande River back in 2008.

Construction should be completed by June of next year.

Emergency repairs to the levee system were done in 2009.
