Bond Elementary flooded with recent rains leaving standing water for school

Flooding at Bond Elementary School on Wednesday, Aug. 22, 2018.

The recent rains in El Paso left behind standing water in some parts of town.

Puddles in the Upper Valley are almost everywhere, including at Bond Elementary School along Lindergh Avenue off of Doniphan Road.

The parking lot and the parts of the playground and field have had standing water all week long.

Parents dropping off and picking up their children at the school are dealing with the flooding issue each time it rains.

KFOX14/CBS4 reached out to officials at El Paso Independent School District about the flooding.

Gustavo Reveles, spokesman for the district, said the district’s maintenance department employees were working to fix the problem at the school Thursday.

In July, officials with the city’s health department said positive results for West Nile were collected in the Upper Valley.

The elementary school is one of the campuses that will be rebuilt with the funds from the 2016 School Bond that was passed by voters.

Reveles said the district does not spray for mosquitoes, but capsules are added to the water that kill them.

Crews at the school added capsules to the standing water Thursday, Reveles said.
