Notice of Water Line Installation: Windy Harbor Dr. & Fallen Timber Dr.

WCID No. 17 is installing new water lines on Windy Harbor Dr. and Fallen Timber Dr. beginning April 1st through June 30th.  Water service to 30 – 40 customers could be affected during this time.  We appreciate your patience as the improvements are made.


Flintrock Phase II Construction

Flintrock Phase II improvements are part of a more extensive series of projects that will expand the Flintrock Wastewater Treatment Plant’s ability to receive and treat sewage from the community. It is located in Serene Hills and includes two (2) 10MG tanks to store treated effluent water from the Flintrock Wastewater Treatment Plant. The treated and stored effluent water will be disposed of through a series of follow on irrigation projects on District held land in the Serene Hills area. This project and its follow-up phases are necessary to ensure the District can reliably serve the continued growing customer base in the Flintrock and Serene Hills areas while meeting the requirements set forth by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.

Critical Water Line Upgrade Project is an Investment in Steiner Ranch’s Future

TRAVIS COUNTY, Texas – Travis County Water Control and Improvement District No. 17 (WCID No. 17) will soon begin Phase I of a $5.9-million investment in the future of Steiner Ranch. This project will upgrade the existing main water line that runs along Quinlan Park Road from University Club Drive to just north of River Ridge Elementary. The upgraded distribution lines will address the need to increase system resiliency for rated fire flow and continued operations in adverse conditions.

“This project is critical to ensuring the long-term viability of the Steiner Ranch system,” says Jason Homan, WCID No. 17 General Manager. “Specifically, with the increased density in the South Steiner peninsula, we are seeing a future need for water capacity and fire flow protection that is larger than that planned for during initial design 20+ years ago.”

This major water line project will help with another of the District’s long-term plans: making the Steiner/Comanche Trail area’s water system independent of the rest of WCID No. 17 from an operational standpoint.

In addition to providing a constant flow of water pressure during peak usage, the project will allow the Steiner Ranch system to operate independently from the Southern portion of the District, significantly improving its operations, maintenance, and ability to respond in emergencies.

The District anticipates a 14-month water line construction schedule that will commence in March 2023 and be completed in May 2024.

GM Homan says the project will fulfill multiple needs for the Steiner Ranch community and the District once completed. “This is a multimillion-dollar investment by the District that will help to ensure the safe and reliable supply of potable water to the Steiner and Comanche Trail areas for decades to come.”

Mansfield Water Treatment Plant Facility Expansion 

This water treatment plant is having its’ capacity increased from 6 million gallons per day (MGD) to 12MGD for treatment. This project will be ongoing into 2023 and will increase the resiliency and ability to meet the increasing water demands throughout the district.


Steiner Ranch Wastewater Treatment Plant Headworks Improvements

Headwork improvements at the wastewater treatment plant are the initial stage of the process to reduce the level of pollutants in the incoming domestic and industrial wastewater to a level that will allow the treated wastewater to be discharged as effluent water.  The Steiner Ranch Headworks are aging and in need of repair and the new headworks system will be much more efficient and increase the overall efficiency of the wastewater treatment plant in Steiner Ranch.
