Improvements to the city water, wastewater infrastructure underway

Posted: Sunday, June 2, 2019 12:00 am

The City of Kerrville completed construction of its surface water treatment plant in 1984, an infrastructure project born in response to the 1950’s dust-bowl drought. Since its completion, the plant has provided more than 40 trillion gallons of drinking water to Kerrville.

“The water treatment plant is an amazing asset; however, it is in need of some repairs and maintenance,” Water Production Superintendent Grant Terry said. “Rehabilitation of the water treatment plant clarifier, the large circular settling basin at the center of our plant, is very important because it is key in settling out contaminates and producing a high quality drinking water.”
