Berry Creek wastewater line stakeholder meeting
The City of Georgetown will hold a stakeholder meeting on Oct. 4 to provide information on the Berry Creek Wastewater Interceptor project. The meeting will be from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Community Room at the Parks and Recreation Administration Building, 1101 N. College St. in Georgetown.
Information about the potential alignment of the 4.4-mile wastewater line project will be provided. The interceptor follows Berry Creek from the Berry Creek subdivision to the Pecan Branch Wastewater Treatment Plant, located on Farm to Market 971 near Weir. Construction on the wastewater line is expected to begin next year.
A team of environmental, engineering, and archaeological experts from the City of Georgetown and Walker Partners will be in attendance to provide information to property owners, businesses, and others interested in the project. There will be an opportunity to provide written comments at the meeting.
Several routes will be shown; one goes right through the park, including the very narrow neck near I-35.
If you go to the park, please note the stakes with pink dayglow vinyl tape and you will see where the sealed boreholes are from subterranean exploration.
