Water System Improvements – Ritchie Road/Spring Valley Road

The City of Waco is now providing service to the area west of Hewitt. Based on 2040 model results, the infrastructure is not adequately sized to serve growth. New water lines will supply surface water to this area and allow the City of Waco to return control of a well owned by the City of Hewitt.

This project consists of installing new water lines along portions of Richie Rd., Spring Valley Rd. and Old Lorena Rd. This project is one of several projects aimed at replacing undersized water lines and installing new water lines along portions of Warren Rd., Spring Valley Rd., Old Lorena Rd., Chapel Rd. and Ritchie Rd.
