City receives $1M in funding for Wastewater Facility Upgrade


The Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) awarded the City of Cleburne funding of up to $1 million for the City’s Wastewater Treatment Expansion Project.

The funding allows the City up to $1 million in principle forgiveness toward the upcoming project. The City is planning to update and expand its wastewater treatment facility to meet Cleburne’s projected growth and demand.

“As our community grows it’s vital that we upgrade our facilities like the wastewater treatment plant to ensure quality service,” Mayor Scott Cain said. “This funding allows us to do just that while being responsible with taxpayer dollars.”

Organizations with projects throughout the state apply for Green Subsidy Funding and the TWDB ranks the projects to allocate funding. The treatment facility expansion is a multi-year project currently in the planning and engineering process with construction anticipated to begin in 2020. The expansion will increase the plant’s capacity by 40-percent. Along with the treatment capacity, this project will help facilitate future water reuse for the local water supply. The project does include a green component in its the indirect potable reuse component and pipeline, which will allow the City to place a portion of the high-quality recycled water back into Lake Pat Cleburne.
