Barton Creek Cleanup 2020

Lost Creek Limited District will conduct its annual Clean Barton Creek Greenbelt Event on Saturday June 20, from 9:00AM – 11:00AM.

We’ll be doing things a little differently than in past years to follow appropriate COVID-19 protocols. Please maintain appropriate social distancing throughout all the day’s activities.

Let’s meet in front of the District building at 1305 Quaker Ridge Dr. at 9:00AM. We will have breakfast tacos for all volunteers. Once we’re organized and fed, we’ll have a quick safety discussion, then head down to the low water crossing and split up into small groups to pick up trash and recyclables.

We’ll be done when we run out of trash or at 11:00, whichever comes first.

The District will supply trash bags, gloves, goggles, and insect repellent for anyone who needs them. Please bring your own water.

If you're planning on joining us, try to give us a call at 512 327 6243 or drop us an email at office@lostcreekld.org to help us with our planning.

This is a great volunteer opportunity for Scouts and students looking for community service opportunities. We will be happy to provide certificates of participation for those needing them, and will deliver those via email.

Please hope for great weather and let’s all work together to beautify the Greenbelt!

Wastewater Project

Lost Creek Wastewater Project

Austin Water is beginning a project to upgrade wastewater facilities in the Lost Creek subdivision. The project includes adding data collection equipment so that the performance of facilities, such as lift stations, can be monitored remotely through the utility’s SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) system. This transfer of data will enable Austin Water to more quickly and efficiently respond to equipment malfunctions and therefore provide more reliable service to our customers.

A contractor working for the City of Austin began the installations the week of June 4, 2019. Five sites within the Lost Creek subdivision will be upgraded. While most of the installation work is expected to be completed in about 6 weeks, additional testing is expected to occur over several months to complete the project.

Many of the sites are located behind homes and it will be necessary for crews to walk between homes and through yards to access the sites. This project will not require heavy construction. Most of the work will involve hand-held tools, wheelbarrows and small concrete mixers.

Greg Nall is the City of Austin Construction Inspector who will oversee the work. He is available to address any concerns you may have. Please feel free to contact him.

Lost Creek Limited District Recreational Facility Survey

The Lost Creek Limited District is a local governmental entity that maintains and improves Lost Creek’s wonderful recreational facilities, enforces neighborhood deed restrictions as necessary to sustain property values, and coordinates Lost Creek’s status as both a Firewise and Dark Skies designated community.

We would like your input on Lost Creek’s current recreational facilities, as well as potential projects or initiatives that have been suggested to or considered by the Limited District Board. We ask that each taxpaying household respond to this survey only once; however, this survey is not a binding vote. The Limited District is operated by a governing board of five directors and expenditures by the Limited District must be for permissible purposes under Texas law and approved by a vote of a majority of directors.

This survey will also be mailed to you and you can respond to it via hardcopy. However, to better ensure the timeliness and accuracy of all responses, we ask that you respond using the online survey if at all possible.

Survey open through June 30!

Water Tank Renovation Project

Austin Water will begin work on the rehabilitation of the Lost Creek Water Reservoirs (storage tanks) in early September 2016. This project is part of the City of Austin Utility’s safety improvement program for water storage reservoirs.

The project includes preparing the surface and coating the interior and exterior portions of the two steel reservoirs next to the Lost Creek Limited District office on Quaker Ridge Dr. It also includes installing structural and safety improvements and upgrading aging equipment.

Work hours will be 7 a.m.—6 p.m. Monday – Friday. Some work may occur on Saturday. No work will take place on Sunday. Residents near the work site may hear noises during this time. The paint will be rolled on the exterior of the tanks, not sprayed.

A portion of the Lost Creek Blvd Park adjacent to the tanks will be closed beginning September 6 for the duration of the project which is scheduled to take about six months. The playground and gazebo areas will remain open. The only area being closed will be the open field on the east end of the park.  

If you are planning an event during this time, you might want to consider the suitability of Boulder Trail Park as an alternative site. Please call the Lost Creek Limited District office at (512) 327-6243 or send an email to office@LostCreekLD.org if you have any questions about park facilities and availability.
