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.
