The city of Marble Falls will utilize more than $2 million in grant funding to help solve bank erosion and fortify areas around certain water crossings, necessitated by the October 2018 flood.

To help pay for the overall cost of fixing problems, including “bank stabilization projects” in the area of Johnson Park and Backbone Creek, the city of Marble Falls entered into a project agreement with U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), Natural Resources Conservancy Service (NRCS) and Emergency Watershed Protection (EWP) Program.
