(New Braunfels, TX – March 16, 2022) – The New Braunfels Utilities (NBU) Surface Water Treatment Plant Capital Improvement Project is just one of NBU’s 145 capital projects over the next five years. Scheduled for completion in the spring of 2023, this more than $11.5 million SWTP Project is expected to provide much-needed transmission capacity support to the Landa Park Pump Station and alleviate high-pressure issues in the area. This capital improvement project is another example of NBU’s commitment to ensuring resilience in its utility system. 

The Project will bring lane and road closures during March and April.

Gruene Road, from Hanz Drive to Rivercrest Drive, is scheduled for all-day lane and road closures from Monday, March 21, through Wednesday, March 30, 2022.

All-day road and lane closures are scheduled for Wednesday, March 30, through Friday, April 8, 2022, on Gruene Road between Gruene Leaf Drive to Gruene Lake Drive.

Both closures will allow crews to install bores in the box culverts in preparation for the waterline installation.

Pesado Construction is the contractor performing the construction for this part of the 24-inch and 30-inch discharge and water line project.

New Braunfels Utilities provides up-to-date traffic impacts for Capital Improvement Projects such as this one on and on its Facebook and Twitter social media channels.

All work is expected to be completed as scheduled, weather permitting.

Contact Desirae Medellin at 830.608.8971 or with any questions regarding the Project.
