Flat Rock Interceptor

The northwest portion of the City of Waco is experiencing growth and the existing wastewater infrastructure needs improvement to accommodate even more anticipated development in the FM 1637 area.  Existing capacity in the area is already inadequate at times and, based on predicted 2050 flows, downstream infrastructure is predicted to surcharge and/or generate sanitary sewer overflows. This project involves improvements to address these capacity issues, including the installation of approximately 6,500 linear feet (LF) of 27-inch wastewater interceptor along Flat Rock Road, from Skeet Eason Road to FM 1637/China Spring Highway, approximately 3,850 LF of 24-inch wastewater interceptor, approximately 2,500 LF of 12-inch force main, and a new lift station to replace the existing Village Lake Lift Station.

Projected Start/End Dates

Work on this project is anticipated to begin in October 2022 and is estimated to be complete in Winter 2023.

Projected Cost

Approximately $6 million

Anticipated Impact to Residents

At this time, no disruptions or street closures are anticipated as a result of this project.
