AUSTIN (KXAN) — Over the next two years, parts of Downtown Austin will undergo construction as city crews work on constructing a 10,500 feet water main for reclaimed water.
The construction starts in November and will start at Martin Luther King and Trinity streets. The main will continue south along Trinity to 11th Street and then head west along 11th and 10th streets terminating at San Antonio Street.
Reclaimed water conserves the drinking water supply and can be used for a variety of non-potable uses such as irrigation and cooling towers. Austin Water Utility says using reclaimed water conserves the area’s drinking water suplly.
All proprieties adjacent to the route of the transmission main will be provided a service for connection.
Construction will be completed in 2017.
