Welcome to the Cameron County Drainage District No. 1 web page. Our goal is to provide you, the citizen or visitor, with an informative, service-oriented point of access to all of Cameron County Drainage District #1 services. We are digging for a brighter future.
Our primary function is to provide adequate and quality drainage to the southeastern portion of Cameron County. This purpose is fulfilled through the continual maintenance of the District’s drainage facilities and the control of development within its bounds.
District One is funded through ad-valorem taxes. The current tax rate is $0.039172 per $100 of valuation. This is the lowest tax rate of any drainage district in south Texas. Last year, District One was the only taxing entity in Cameron County to lower its tax assessment on an average household!
