The West 9th and 12th Street Water and Wastewater Renewal 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 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 6,000 linear feet of water lines and 2,700 linear feet of wastewater lines. Austin Water partners with the Public Works Department whose project management staff supervises construction.


The project is expected take about 15 months to complete. Construction is expected to begin around August 2021.
