Small Feature Discovered While Installing New Gas Line on Cambria Drive

Small Feature Discovered While Installing New Gas Line on Cambria Drive

Williamson County’s contractor Chasco Constructors was working Friday morning, September 14, to reinstall the gas line under Cambria Drive when they viewed an opening while trenching for the gas line in an area that had not been previously exposed and had not been filled with concrete. The opening is toward Ephraim Road approximately where the sidewalk had been along Cambria Drive. Chasco immediately stopped work and contacted Cambrian Environmental who viewed the feature and called the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ). The county estimates that it will take a few days to investigate along the gas line to determine the size of the feature and if it is connected to other features. The county’s consultants will use hand tools and possibly a small excavator in order to determine the size of the opening. Currently, the opening is not large enough for a person to go into and visually inspect. The opening has been plugged in order to keep sediment from getting into the feature or aquifer until further inspection can be done.
