Residents along the San Marcos River, who have had to cope with noise and litter from partying tubers, are getting some help from state Sen. Judith Zaffirini, D-Laredo.

An inner tube floats down the Rio Grande River in Hidalgo County, TX  on August 25, 2011.  Truck tubes and floats are commonly used by illegal aliens and smugglers to transport people and drugs across the border river between Texas and Mexico.

Residents along the San Marcos River, who have had to cope with noise and litter from partying tubers, are getting some help from state Sen. Judith Zaffirini, D-Laredo, who has filed a bill to create a water oriented river district (WORD). The district, which would pay for litter cleanups and extra law enforcement, would be governed by a seven-member board from precincts in Guadalupe and Caldwell counties that border the river.
