City gears up to build Comanche water main


The city’s Engineering/Capital Improvements department will host a public meeting at 6 p.m. Wednesday May 23 at the San Marcos Activity Center, 501 E Hopkins, Room 1 on the Comanche water transmission main project.

This public meeting will inform residents about the project and introduce the engineers and contractor to the community. The project manager and City engineers will present an overview of the project and be on hand to answer questions.

The project will build a 24-inch water main 6,640 feet long from Ed J.L. Green Drive at the Spring Lake Booster Pump Station to the Comanche Stand Pipe Tank located at the intersection of Comanche and Sessom Street. It includes the installation of approximately 1,340 feet of 12-inch water main along N. LBJ from Forest Street to Peach Tree Street.

On May 1, the city council awarded the construction contract in the amount of $2,644,987.00 to Santa Clara Construction, Ltd. of Austin, Texas.

Comanche 24” Transmission Main was recommended in the 2004 Water Distribution Master Plan to increase system capacity and service reliability. The total estimated project cost is $3,722,000, including design, right of way acquisition and construction.

The project will begin construction in June and is anticipated to last 12 months. For information, contact Engineering/Capital Improvements department at 512-393-8130.
