Water Line Development CIP Projects

Water system improvements represent the single largest program category with $105.6 million in projects to be funded during the FY 2015-2019 period.  These projects focus on improvements to the distribution and renewal of the existing water system and address obtaining new supply and its distribution.  New bond financing backed by utility revenues over five years is required for $84.1 million of this total.  Key projects in FY 2015, with a total of $23.5 million in funding, include construction of 36-inch waterline from SH3 booster station to South Shore Harbour booster station, construction of segments 3-5 of the southeast service area trunk lines, annual waterline upgrades and replacements, and construction of the new east side elevated tank and well.

Also included in the proposed CIP is League City’s proportional share (estimated at $43.6 million) of the expected construction by the City of Houston of a 60-inch upsized replacement for the 42-inch water line down State Highway 3.  This line provides 68 percent of League City’s current surface water supply.

SEWPP Treatment Improvements: This project is based on anticipated treatment improvements a the SEWPP which co-participants (GCWA) will owe a portion of.  Programmed for FY 2016 based on estimates from City of Houston for when actual costs are determined.  Cash Call Only - City of Houston managing Design and Construction.  This Project is pending.

60" Water Line Replace 42" Line on SH3: Preliminary design has begun, land acquisition in FY2018-2019, and construction FY2020-FY2021.  Cash Call Only - City of Houston managing Design and Construction.

24-Inch Water Line Stabilization:  FY 2016:This project is to stabilize the 24-inch waterline along League City Pkwy (SH96) that runs along the bank of Gay's Pond. Phase 2 survey completed February 2016; Soliciting supplemental agreement to evaluate alternate route.

New Well & Generator at South Shore Elevated:  This project consists of the design, construction, and development of a 1500 gpm groundwater well at the City's existing South Shore Elevated Storage Tank site, located at 6060 South Shore Blvd. In addition to the well, the project provides associated emergency generator, chemical feed/electrical building, fill & distribution piping, SCADA equipment/integration, and necessary site access improvements for well operation and maintenance.   Well sites are located based on geographic service coverage and the most economical method of distribution delivery. This proposed well provides needed service coverage to the City far eastside and utilizes a direct fill to elevated storage configuration. This effectively eliminates the need of costly ground storage and distribution pumping facilities, as the groundwater is pumped directly into the existing elevated storage where naturally occurring elevation head provides distribution pressure.  Rescope for Westside Well.
