Cleburne to apply for Wastewater Treatment Plant expansion funding


The City of Cleburne is obtaining funding to expand its Wastewater Treatment Plant.

Cleburne City Council approved a resolution requesting $42 million from the Texas Water Development Board to fund the expansion during its Sept. 25 meeting. The state board operates the Clean Water State Revolving Fund to assist communities by providing low-cost financing for projects.

The money covers the expansion’s cost including planning, acquisition, designing, and construction improvements. The expansion will increase the plant’s capacity by 40-percent, improve treatment capacity, and facilitate future water reuse for the water supply.

The Texas Water Development Board determined Cleburne qualifies for financial assistance. This funding allows Cleburne to initiate multiple loans at various amounts once funds are needed to limit interest costs. Other benefits from working with the Clean Water fund include below-market fixed interest rates, principal forgiveness for qualifying green project elements, up to 30-year repayment period, and multi-year commitments.

The city will submit its application to the board in October. The city plans to initiate designing the expansion in early 2019 with construction beginning in mid to late 2020.
