The Zilker Water and Wastewater Renewal Project is part of Austin Water’s Renewing Austin Program—an ongoing program to replace and upgrade aging infrastructure. Water line breaks are well documented in the area. The project is necessary to increase reliability of service and avoid further expenditures to maintain water lines that have broken frequently. Wastewater lines will also be improved in the area.

Austin Water is collaborating with the Watershed Protection Department to include repair or replacement of storm water pipes in the same project. “Digging once” to make improvements to three infrastructure systems in one project will consolidate construction in this area and minimize disruption to neighbors.


The project is planned to begin construction in early 2023.
