The City of Brownwood moved a step closer on Tuesday to implement a wastewater reuse project after a presentation from representatives from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ).
Brownwood City Council authorized the application for financial assistance on Tuesday from the Texas Water Development Board to fund engineering and construction costs of the proposed Supplemental Water Supply Treatment Facility (SWSTF) and improvements to the City’s existing wastewater treatment facility.
Brownwood City Finance Director Walter Middleton reminded the city council that this step is not approving the project, but was just the next step to secure funding for the project if eventually approved.
“Today’s request for an application is not funding, we are not getting any money, all we are doing is asking for approval (of the application),” said Middleton.
With the approval of this authorization, City of Brownwood staff may apply for funds from TWDB from a loan not to exceed $12 Million. The potential costs of the projects are estimated to be $11,185,000; however the larger amount is being requested to make sure enough funds are available should costs vary. If eventually approved, and estimated $8,185,000 of the funds would be used for the Supplemental Water Supply Treatment Facility while $3,000,000 would be for repairs and improvements to the city’s the current wastewater treatment plant.
