The Oltorf Street Reclaimed Water Main Phase 2 Project is part of a series of projects called Completing the Core and will add about 7,000 linear feet of 24" reclaimed water main plus miscellaneous drinking water system improvements to address low pressure issues near IH-35.
The project will start at the E Oltorf St and Burton Dr intersection and run west along E Oltorf St, then north on Parker Ln, west on Mariposa Dr, north on Kenwood Ave, west on Mariposa Dr, north on Travis Heights Blvd, and end at Fairmount Dr. It is an essential project in securing a looped reclaimed water supply.
Austin Water’s Oltorf Street Reclaimed Water Main Phase 2 Project is currently in the advertise/bid/award phase. The project will build a new reclaimed water main to deliver reclaimed water to customers for non-potable uses such as irrigation, toilet flushing, and industrial uses.

Connecting to Reclaimed Water
Reclaimed water is highly purified wastewater that is ordinarily discharged to the Colorado River. Austin Water takes some of the water, stores it in tanks and pumps it to customers for non-drinking uses such as irrigation, cooling, toilet flushing and manufacturing. Using reclaimed water conserves our drinking water supply.
If you are interested in having a reclaimed water connection, let us know and we can provide information on what is involved. After paying for a meter, we’ll arrange with our contractor to install a service line and meter box. The cost of a connection can be substantially reduced if it is done with the construction of the main.
