The Academy Drive Water and Wastewater Improvement Project is part of Renewing Austin, an Austin Water program to replace and upgrade aging water lines. Austin Water is protecting our city's water infrastructure by investing in upgrades and repairs of the existing water lines. Water line breaks are well documented in this area and the project is necessary to avoid further expenditures to maintain water lines that have broken frequently.

The project will replace about 2,650 linear feet of water and 3,215 linear feet of wastewater lines. Austin Water partners with the Public Works Department whose project management staff supervises construction.


The project is expected to take about 16 months to complete. Construction is expected to begin in summer 2022.
