01/31/2024 – City of Leander hosted a Water Conservation Forum on Wednesday for contractors, landscape irrigators and HOA representatives. The forum was intended to provide information and solicit feedback on water conservation topics in Leander.
- “Why We Need a New Mindset on Water Conservation” – Keynote address by Lower Colorado River Authority’s (LCRA) John Hofmann, executive vice president of water, and Monica Masters, vice president of water resources
- City of Leander’s conservation plan, new ordinance rules, and code enforcement
- HOA rules vs. City of Leander regulations
- One Water: A comprehensive approach to water conservation
- Extreme Water Conditions: How to support your community during emergencies
Leander will transition from Phase 2 to Phase 4 water conservation measures starting Monday, Feb. 12, to prepare for Brushy Creek Regional Utility Authority (BCRUA) contractors replacing 1,400 feet of the underwater pipeline that is Leander's primary source for potable water from Lake Travis. Pipeline construction begins Feb. 28 and will require a shutdown of the BCRUA water treatment plant. This will reduce Leander's potable water capacity from 25 million gallons per day (MGD) to 9 MGD as Leander will have to rely on its smaller Sandy Creek Water Treatment Plant. The BCRUA project is expected to be completed by the first week of April.
During Phase 4, Leander water customers should make sure their irrigation systems are turned off and restrict all other non-essential water use.
