Water Improvement Project

8/31/2021 Update
The water project continues to move forward with some minor delays over the last few months. Currently pressure testing of the new lines as well as lab sampling Bac-T tests are being performed in Phases I and II. As of now, these have all been successful and we hope to begin transferring services over soon. We have begun Phase IV into San Bernard Villas however Phase III, which will be Main St. and the final section of 2nd St. are still on hold due to TXDOT permits.

We will be providing notice upon service transfers when those begin both by social media and our mass notification system.

6/10/2021 Update
The water improvement project is currently in all 4 phases, which is a different approach than what was previously discussed and planned with the contractors. However, permitting issues with TXDOT for both 2nd St. and Main St. has caused us to change our plan some to stay on track and continue moving forward. Phases 1 and 2 had slight variations to the layout of the piping but nothing of major consequence. The portion of Phase 4 from Main St. to Forest Park Court was modified to lay the pipe on the south side of Ashley Wilson versus the north side due to high pressure gas lines from Hilcorp as well as municipal water, sewer and gas lines.

As most of you are aware we have had what seems like an entire month of rain in May. Very little work has been done to progress this project since May 1st but we are hopeful for some dry weather to be able to continue this project going forward. Early delays and disruptions that the City was plagued with have been greatly reduced and we hope to limit if not eliminate these disruptions as we continue moving forward on the project.

2/1/2021 Update

As you can see from the map, Phase 1 will be a portion of East Ashley Wilson, Kent St. and Hackberry. Since Friday of last week (01/29/2021) you may have noticed flagging and staking, this is being performed by the Engineering and Construction companies.
Additionally, please note that the only disruption to service, pending any major discovers during installation, will be at the end of each phase upon tying in the service lines (your home) to the newly installed distribution lines. The City will be notified with a timeline of this and then we will contact the residents as needed. The disruption should be very minimal and our hope is to provide every effort possible to give ample notice. Of course, please remember to contact City Hall with any questions you may have.
