The project includes extending the existing reclaimed water line to provide service to Texas State University, the addition of a pump to the existing reclaimed water pump station, and installing an elevated storage tank near Hwy 123 and De Zavala Drive, on the east side of Highway 123 approximately 500 feet south of the DeZavala intersection. 

The construction of the elevated storage tank (EST) was recently awarded to CB&I. The tank will maintain reasonable system pressure during peak demand and ensure reclaimed water availability to remotely located customers. 

The scope of work includes the construction of a new 500,000-gallon single pedestal spheroid elevated storage tank, with yard piping, a chlorinator, tank mixing equipment, electrical and SCADA controls, complete in place. The San Marcos High School Rattler logo (newest version) will be installed on one or two sides of the tank.

The total estimated cost of the project is $7,700,000. The city has secured various funding sources for financial assistance for the project including Texas State University, the Edwards Aquifer Authority, and the Texas Water Development Board.
