The source of the District’s water supply is Lake Travis. The District owns and operates three water treatment plants on one site with a combined capacity of approximately 6 million gallons of treated water per day, has 3.24 million gallons of storage, 72 miles of water lines, 320 fire hydrants and more than 4,000 water customers.
The District is a party to two interconnection agreements with adjacent authorities, i.e., Hurst Creek MUD and Water District 17. The terms of these agreements provide for the sale or purchase of water between the parties when needed and when available. The District has both bought and sold water under these mutually beneficial agreements.
The District owns and operates 39 miles of wastewater collection line and 21 pumping stations that serve more than about 2,900 wastewater customers at the following water recycling plants:
- The Palos Verdes water recycling plant has a permitted capacity of 810,000 gallons per day (GPD) serving much of the eastern area of Lakeway.
- The west water recycling plant is located near the World of Tennis. It has a capacity of 400,000 gallons per day, and serves the area of Lakeway west of the Airpark
Recycled water is a water supply created by “reusing” wastewater. Recycled water is treated and disinfected to meet Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) standards and produced for beneficial non-drinking purposes.
