Phase 1A Segment B Pipeline Project
Alliance Regional Water Authority Press Release
Buda, Texas – On Wednesday, December 18th, the Alliance Regional Water Authority (Alliance Water) and its contractor, Smith Contracting, began the Phase 1A Segment B Pipeline construction project in Buda. The project includes the installation of a 24-inch diameter pipeline from Alliance Water’s Booster Pump Station on FM 2770 (Jack C. Hays Trail) to the City of Buda’s Delivery Point at the intersection of FM 1626 and Old Black Colony Road.
The project includes approximately 18,000 linear feet of ductile iron pipeline, gate valves and tunnels under FM 2770 and Onion Creek. Erosion and sedimentation best management practices will be followed along with traffic control for the work in the vicinity of Old Black Colony Road and Cole Springs Road.
The project is a vital aspect of Alliance Water’s overall effort to deliver a new water supply to all of our customers. Initially the pipeline will be used as part of Alliance Water’s established water sharing agreement and will eventually be utilized to deliver treated Carrizo-Wilcox groundwater to the City of Buda.
Smith Contracting will start at the southern end of the project and work to the north. The project is expected to be complete at the end of 2020.
