AUSTIN – (September 3, 2020) – The Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) today approved by resolution financial assistance in the amount of a $4,130,000 loan from the Clean Water State Revolving Fund to the City of Brady (McCulloch County). The City will use the assistance to finance construction costs associated with wastewater system improvements.

The City could save approximately $1,162,000 over the life of the loan by using the Clean Water State Revolving Fund.

With the assistance approved today, the City will complete the construction phase of its wastewater treatment plant replacement project. The new 0.6-million-gallon-per-day wastewater treatment plant will be raised out of the floodplain and stormwater controls will be put in place. The City previously received funds from the TWDB for planning and design in 2012 and construction in 2019 for this project.

The TWDB is the state agency charged with collecting and disseminating water-related data, assisting with regional water and flood planning, and preparing the state water and flood plans. The TWDB administers cost-effective financial assistance programs for the construction of water supply, wastewater treatment, flood control, and agricultural water conservation projects.
