Based on the 2020 census, most Texas towns are in a growth-mode. And no Texas town has experienced it like Schertz. The town of 40,000, grew by a third in the last ten years and they think growth with continue on that same trajectory. Town leaders all agree it’s hard to grow with out water. With that in mind, they are planning to invest over $40 million in water, sewer and drainage projects throughout the city.
The town says these projects are a mixture of investments in new infrastructure–to accommodate growth, and to keep systems up to speed. “There is a certain amount that is related to growth, and we have plenty of mechanisms that support that growth, but then there is also a need to support infrastructure for residents that have been here all this time, said Schertz’s Scott McClelland.”
Three water projects are anticipated to start sometime in 2023.
