The source of the LMUD’s raw water supply is Lake Travis, which we purchase from the Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA). We own and operate three water treatment plants on one site with a combined capacity of approximately 6 million gallons of treated water per day. We have the storage capacity for 3.24 million gallons of potable water, maintain a system encompassing 72 miles of water lines and 320 fire hydrants all in the service of approx. 4,000 water customer connections.
LMUD is a party to two interconnection agreements with adjacent authorities, i.e., Hurst Creek MUD and Water District 17. The terms of these agreements provide for the sale or purchase of water between the parties when needed and when available. LMUD has both bought and sold water under these mutually beneficial agreements.
LMUD owns and operates approx. 39 miles of wastewater collection line and 21 pumping stations that serve more than about 2,900 wastewater customer connections at the following water recycling plants:
Recycled water is a water supply created by “reusing” wastewater. Recycled water is treated and disinfected to meet Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) standards and produced for beneficial non-drinking purposes, such as irrigation.
