Demolitions will take place through early February 2024

(New Braunfels, TX – December 22, 2023) – New Braunfels Utilities (NBU) continues its water infrastructure improvement plans. On Wednesday, December 27, 2023, NBU’s contractors are scheduled to begin mobilizing equipment for the demolition of the long-standing and retired Coll Street water tank. The Coll Street water tank demolition follows the successful completion of the also retired water tank sitting near the newly installed Veramendi Tank on Loop 337.

The Coll Street water tank, has been inactive for the past decade. The decision to decommission the Coll Street tank has been planned for several years and aligns with NBU’s commitment to enhancing and modernizing our water infrastructure to better serve the needs of our community.

Additionally, a third water tank is slated for demolition. The long-since retired Sunset Drive water tank is slated to be demolished by early February 2024.

As we progress with the decommissioning and demolition of these water tanks, our teams will prioritize safety, efficiency, and minimal disruption to the surrounding areas.

New Braunfels Utilities appreciates the support and understanding of our community during this phase of the overall water system’s improvements.

For more information, contact Adam Willard at or 830.608.8943. All work is expected to be completed as scheduled, weather permitting.
