Hidalgo Pump House


Hidalgo, TX

Pump House Museum

We went on a tour of the old Hidalgo Texas Pump Station.  The Hidalgo Pump house was the original pump house for the Louisiana-Rio Grande Canal Company.  It was used to pump water out of the Rio Grande into an irrigation system moving the water north to Edinburg.  From the main canal, the water would flow east, toward the coast and irrigate approximately 70,000 acres. At least 16 pump houses like this one once lined the Rio Grande.  They all have since been converted to electric pumps.
