Below is information regarding a planned wastewater line that would go along Sink Creek at the Spring Lake Preserve. I urge everyone to attend and listen to the presentation and express any concerns that you may have. SMGA works to conserve and provide thoughtful stewardship for our natural areas. We hope that this project is in the best interest of the people of San Marcos.

Public Meeting Slated on Sink Creek Wastewater Main
The City of San Marcos Capital Improvements Department will host a public meeting on the Sink Creek Phase II wastewater interceptor project at the Activity Center, 501 Hopkins St. at 6 p.m. Monday April 18, 2011.
City engineers and project design consultants from Lockwood, Andrews & Newnam, Inc. will present information about the project and be available to answer questions.
The project will install a new 21- inch sanitary sewer main from the intersection of N. LBJ Drive and Oakridge along Sink Creek to Lime Kiln Road.
“This wastewater main will relieve capacity issues and overflows downstream of the N LBJ lift station. The new main will protect against possible discharge or overflows in the future” said Jennifer Shell, Interim Director of Capital Improvements. “Several aging lift stations in the area will also be replaced, adding more environmental value to this project.”
The Sink Creek wastewater line replacement was identified as a Capital Improvements project in the City’s 2005 Wastewater Master Plan. Project cost is estimated to be $3.5 million.
The City Council will hold a Public Hearing on the project at the regular meeting scheduled on May 17, 2011.
Construction is slated to begin in the fall of 2011, with completion in the fall of 2012.
