Council approves SEDC's contribution to water tower project; Money will be used to help boost infrastructure for Springs Hill customers near CMC
Posted on 6/27/2017 8:41:00 AM.
(Seguin) -- A much needed water infrastructure project is coming to Seguin's extra-territorial jurisdiction.  The Seguin City Council last Tuesday approved a $100,000 expenditure from the Seguin Economic Development Corporation Board of Directors that will allow the money to be contributed toward an elevated water storage tank project near CMC Steel Texas.
 
City Economic Development Director Josh Schneuker says the water tower is a project being led by Springs Hill Water Supply. He says the SEDC is contributing a small amount towards the $2.6 million project, because this project will be good for growth in that area. 
 
"Spring Hills approached the SEDC to request funding assistance on this project for a construction of one million gallon elevated water storage tank. It's off FM 1620, just south of FM 78 near CMC Steel. The new water tank will increase the water capacity to serve the growing population that's anticipated in the area. It will also be used to support the city of Seguin in case of an emergency, as well within that region, (and) increase our fire protection flows for a lot of major manufacturers within the region that are serviced by Springs Hill, (including) CMC and Caterpillar to name a few. The ultimate goal and why we're stepping up to the table is to hopefully encourage new and expanded business development with that new additional water capacity," said Schneuker.
 
CMC Steel Texas has pledged roughly $240,000 towards the project, while Springs Hill pay for the bulk of the water tower, with its $2.25 million investment.  The SEDC did establish a performance agreement with Springs Hill, which states that the project must get started by December of 2017, and be completed by December of 2018.
