Today we received official word that work has begun on the Green Water Treatment Plant in downtown Austin. According to Cynthia De Witt Jordan, project manager with COA Public Works dept, “the general contractor, Austin Filter Systems Inc. has begun performing actual deconstruction work activities this week after a period of time preparing the site. The City is very glad to finally see this important project move forward.”
This first phase of work is limited to the deconstruction of the existing plant. Top priorities are environmental remediation, recycling of applicable materials, Shoal Creek bank stabilization and finally site restoration.
