Hutto Wastewater Master Planning
City of Hutto
Master planning for the City of Hutto’s existing Extraterritorial Jurisdiction (ETJ) and wastewater Certificate of Convenience and Necessity (CCN), evaluating their current needs, optimizing and expanding their system for planned, future growth.
The city of Hutto’s population has grown 88 percent between 2010 and 2020, with a current growth rate of 4.46% annually. DCS was contracted to evaluate the City’s existing wastewater infrastructure and forecast areas of future growth, optimizing the system for an ultimate population of 258,000.
Projects were designed to efficiently use the natural topography and existing infrastructure of the area, serving the needs of a growing community while employing City funds in the most practical manner. Project recommendations include: over 250,000 Linear Feet (LF) of interceptor, 10 interim and ultimate lift stations, a 3.25 Million Gallons per Day (MGD) Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP), and a 15.5 MGD WWTP. The 10-year Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) totaled $112 M. The total cost of all projects identified was about $534 M, summarized in a CIP list with projected trigger dates and construction costs. Several of these projects are currently under design.
