SSLGC Breaks Ground on Water Treatment Plant in Nixon, Tx
SEGUIN, Texas – City leaders from the City of Seguin and the City of Schertz joined the Schertz-Seguin Local Government Corporation (SSLGC) Board of Directors and staff on Thursday, May 6 at a ceremony to break ground on its $33 million dollar Guadalupe Project located in Nixon, Texas.
The project consists of a new 6.0 MGD water treatment plant, wellfield (including 6 wells - 5 drilled in the Carrizo Aquifer, 1 drilled in the Wilcox Aquifer), wellfield access roads and pipelines to carry water from each well to the new water treatment plant.
This new infrastructure will allow SSLGC to develop up to 6,000 acre feet of water from the Carrizo and Wilcox Aquifers in Guadalupe County. The project is anticipated to be completed at the end of 2022.
The Guadalupe Project will provide SSLGC with additional water needed to meet increasing water demands in the City of Schertz and, in the future, other SSLGC customers.
