Austin Water currently has three water treatment plants which draw water from the Colorado River and treat it to drinking water quality. After water is pumped from the river into the plants, it goes through several treatment steps to ensure that citizens are provided with clean and safe water.  

  • Berl L. Handcox Sr. Water Treatment Plant
  • Albert R. Davis Water Treatment Plant
  • Albert H. Ullrich Water Treatment Plant

Berl L. Handcox Water Treatment Plant was commissioned December 2014.

The City of Austin treats and filters the water according to federal and state standards to remove any possible harmful contaminants.
