Officials greenlight BCRUA water, wastewater main projects
ROUND ROCK Officials approved two contracts for repair and remedia- tion of Brushy Creek Regional Utility Authority water and wastewater mains during a July 14 council meeting. The first contract involves a $65,030 repair to a 21-inch wastewater main located at the confluence of the Dry Branch and Brushy creeks, discov- ered in the investigation of BCRUA wastewater lines following excess inflows observed since May 2021. Chasco Construction will repair the leak, allowing the system to operate normally. Chasco Construction also repaired an emergency leak in a wastewater receptor near Hairy Man Road earlier this year. Officials will pay for the project through a self-financed city wastewater construction fund. The second contract is a remedia- tion of a 72-inch water transmission main along New Hope Drive. The remediation will correct settlement of soil around the transmission line, according to Michael Thane, Round
Rock Utilities Department director. While the line is located in Cedar Park, it also serves Leander and Round Rock. The $314,632.89 contract awarded to Austin Under- ground Inc. is reflective of the 51.78% ownership stake Round Rock has in
the line. The total cost for the project is $607,634, and the city’s portion will be paid from its regional water fund. The contract must also be approved by Leander and Cedar Park before work can begin.
ROUND ROCK’S SHARE One of the project contracts approved at the July 14 Round Rock City Council meeting is for a water transmission line remediation for settling of soil around the 72-inch pipe. Round Rock will share the cost of the project with Cedar Park and Leander under the cities’ Brushy Creek Regional Utility Authority partnership.
