The BCRUA organization's General Manager, Karen Bondy, oversees the BCRUA treatment system expansion, while completing final design and construction of the Phase 2 Deep Water Intake in Lake Travis.
Phase 2 Raw Water Delivery System
BCRUA is developing the Phase 2 Raw Water Delivery System to provide safe, reliable water to withstand drought and increase capacity to accommodate future regional growth.
The project consists of a Raw Water Intake with two lake taps with multi-level intake screens that connect to a gravity Raw Water Intake Tunnel that transports water to a new 145-million-gallons-per-day Raw Water Pump Station. The Raw Water Transmission Tunnel and Pipeline will transport the pumped water to the existing Cedar Park, Sandy Creek, and BCRUA water treatment plants. A Maintenance Building will also be constructed to house chemical feed systems to protect the infrastructure from invasive species and provide quality improvements to the raw water prior to pumping.
The Phase 2 project is funded by the BCRUA, its customer cities, and in collaboration with the Texas Water Development Board.
