The Austin City Council will be voting on receiving a feasibility report on proposed improvements to the Turtle Creek 2 sanitary sewer during the council’s next meeting.

According to City Engineer Steven Lang, proposed work on the sewer, located west of Austin along Oakland Avenue West, includes extension of the sanitary sewer to 40 residential properties and will include 26 gravity service connections, 14 low-pressure service connections and five service connections.

The estimated cost for the project is $1,933,001. Of that, $1,310,400.80 would be funded by a Point Source Implementation Grant and $622,600 would be funded by Wastewater Treatment Plant Fund 61. The rest would be covered by the property owners through the Sewer Access Charge, which is $16,700 per household.
