Water Facilities

All operations at the District’s treatment facilities are regulated by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).  Our water meets or exceeds all of the requirements of these agencies and is rated superior by the State of Texas.

Both of the District 17 water treatment plants use state-of-the-art membrane microfiltration technology which is capable of filtering out particles as small as 0.1 micron in size.

Eck Lane Water Treatment Plant  The Eck Lane Water Treatment Plant is located on Lake Travis inside the Arkansas Bend providing the municipal drinking water supply for over 30,000 people within the District boundaries and surrounding areas. Originally built in 1961, the Eck Lane plant has been in continuous operation for over 55 years and has undergone several expansions to keep up with the District’s rapid growth and water demand. The last expansion was completed in 2009 which brought the capacity to 16 million gallons per day (MGD).

Mansfield Water Treatment Plant  In 2016, the District completed the addition of the Mansfield Water Treatment Plant located just north of the Mansfield Dam on Lake Travis. This plant is currently capable of treating 6 million gallons per day (MGD) of municipal drinking water and can be expanded to 12 MGD when needed for the future. The Mansfield plant is also capable of drawing water for treatment from the lake at very low lake levels, down to 555 feet mean sea level (555 ft. msl).
