Since the Huerta family owns their home, they have moved back and rebuilt. But many families left Dove Springs never to return, especially renters. Others are trying to decide if they should rebuild too, or leave. Many are waiting to learn if the City of Austin and Travis County will buy their homes in the floodplain.
