PRESIDIO - Flood damaged levees in Presidio are about to get a much needed facelift.

Over eight million dollars in work will rebuild six miles of Rio Grande flood levees downstream from Presidio.

The levee system there was badly damaged by severe flooding back in 2008.

Flood waters from heavy rains in México also displaced several residents.

Work should be finished sometime in 2012.
