For Immediate Release
Sink Creek Interceptor Hearing Rescheduled for June 21
A public hearing on the Sink Creek Phase 2 wastewater interceptor project has been rescheduled from May 17 to the June 21, 2011 City Council meeting.
The new date will allow the City of San Marcos to comply with Texas Parks and Wildlife Code Section 26.002 regarding the publication of notice of the hearing.
The Sink Creek project will install a new 21- inch sanitary sewer main from the intersection of N. LBJ Drive and Oakridge along and across Sink Creek to Lime Kiln Road. The new interceptor will relieve wastewater capacity issues and overflows downstream of the N LBJ lift station. Two aging lift stations in the area will also be replaced.
City engineers and the design consultants, Lockwood, Andrews & Newnam, Inc., held a public meeting on the project April 18 at the Activity Center. Information presented at that meeting is available on the City’s Capital Improvements webpage at http://www.sanmarcostx.gov/departments/CIP/SinkCreekPhaseIIDocList.html
The Sink Creek wastewater interceptor was identified as a recommended improvement project in the City’s 1995 and 2005 Wastewater Master Plans. Project cost is estimated at $3.5 million.
Construction is slated to begin in the fall of 2011, with completion in the fall of 2012.
