Construction began in December 2014 on the UGRA Water and Sediment Control Basins K-3 and K-4 located in western Kerr County. During significant rainfall events, these basins capture and temporarily detain high flows allowing the flows to be released in a controlled manner to protect water quality and control erosion. In addition, the basins capture sediments that would otherwise degrade downstream water quality.
Construction has started for the first part of this project located along SH 39 near McNeil Street. The purpose of the project is to provide wastewater service to existing and future nonresidential connections in the central portion of the City and the businesses along Junction Highway (SH 27) in the eastern portion of the City. The proposed wastewater system improvements consist of the installation of new 6-12 inch gravity sewer lines in the central and eastern portions of the City along SH 39 and SH 27.
Construction continues on the Louise Hays Park improvements with completion scheduled for early 2015. The Louise Hays Park is a 63 acre park located along the Guadalupe River and will include amenities such as playgrounds, covered pavilions, children’s spray park, hike and bike trail, Guadalupe River access and more.
