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.

If you have any questions or concerns about the project itself please contact:
