Floresville unveils $3.5M plan to overhaul water system
GREGORY RIPPS — Thomas Turk, senior project manager with M&S Engineering, displays an illustration to explain well rehabilitation at Floresville’s Sept. 10 public information meeting.
Floresville has a plan to overhaul its water system. 

Representatives of M&S Engineering presented the plan at a Sept. 10 public information meeting at City Hall. The plan includes a number of projects, ranging from replacement of storage tanks and meters to major rehabilitation of water plant sites.  One of the first projects will be to replace the aging 6-inch pipes in the downtown area with new 8-inch pipes.

“Our strategy is to start with the part of the city that’s the oldest,” M&S senior project manager Thomas Turk said.

Execution of the plan will cost an estimated $3,575,000, which the city hopes to fund through a grant and loan combination from the U.S. Department of Agriculture.  Turk said that, if everything falls into place with funding and bids, the water projects could be completed by the end of 2016, but more likely in 2017.  Floresville City Manager Henrietta Turner said that, combined with wastewater and street projects, “We’ll be up and cookin’ by 2018.”
