Cedar Park City Council voted to enter an agreement that would increase the city's wastewater treatment capacity by 2.1 million gallons per day.
Cedar Park City Council voted unanimously Oct. 25 to authorize a new wastewater service agreement regarding the Brushy Creek Regional Wastewater System, or BCRWS.
The BCRWS is jointly owned by Cedar Park, Round Rock, Austin and Leander. The system’s east regional wastewater treatment plant located in Round Rock is being expanded by 10 million gallons per day of wastewater treatment capacity.
The agreement allocates a portion of the expanded capacity—2.1 million gallons per day—to Cedar Park. This added capacity will bring the city’s total capacity to 7.97 million gallons per day, which will meet the city’s needs through 2037, according to city documents.
