Ballot Proposition

Jefferson County Water Control & Improvement District No 10

May 11, 2013 Ballot Proposition For Water System Improvements

The Jefferson County Water Control & Improvement District No. 10 Board of Directors has called a special election on Saturday May 11, 2013 to consider authorizing the issuance of $1,325,000 in bonds to fund water system improvements.  The Bonds shall be repaid by the assessment and collection of ad valorem tax to finance the proposed improvements.  Due to the refinancing of the District’s 2003 Bonds at a lower net effective interest rate, the District hopes to issue the bonds to fund the proposed water system improvements and repay them without an increase in the current property tax rate of the District.  The Bonds, if approved, would be paid through 2033.

The improvements proposed include construction of a 1 million gallon per day clarifier for the water plant to provide redundancy in the event of a mechanical failure or operational problems and to replace an undersized clarifier.  Additionally, the improvements include installation of a Data Monitoring System or “SCADA” System for the water plant.  The “SCADA” System provides computer monitoring and transmission of information continuously on plant equipment and operations. The water plant typically is in operation 24 hours per day 7 days per week, but is not staffed after 5:00 pm, so the “SCADA” system will provide communication as to key components to ensure public safety.

Texas Department of Rural Affairs Grant

Work to start a Texas Department of Rural Affairs Grant will begin in April 2013. The Grant (Hurricane Ike/Dolly Round 1) will provide for a new building to house electrical components, raise existing high service pumps, install generators and or receptacles for the water plant, fire station, office and 9 lift stations.

Texas Water Development Board Sanitary Sewer Improvements Project

The District’s Contractor P M Maintenance has completed the replacement by means of pipe bursting of approximately 14,000 linear feet of 6-12 inch concrete sewer pipe. The contractor continues to cleanup easements, and will repair damaged streets in the very near future. This project cost came in under estimated budget so the Board of Directors have decided to utilize the remaining funds to replace the existing Central Boulevard Lift Station with a larger lift station and to investigate and replace more defective sewer lines in the Central Gardens area. This work will take place late 2013.

Water System Improvements (May 2013 Bond Proposition)

The Jefferson County Water Control & Improvement District No. 10 Board of Directors called a Bond Election for Water System Improvements. The ballot proposition set for Saturday May 11, 2013 will ask District constituents to consider authorizing the issuance of up to $1.325 million dollars of bonds. The bonds shall be repaid by the assessment and collection of an ad valorem tax to finance the proposed improvements. Due to the recent refinancing of a previous 2003 bond at a lower net effective interest rate the District may be able to issue this additional debt to fund the proposed water system improvements without a tax increase based on current property taxes. Bond payments would exist for a period extending through 2033.

The Water System Improvements project includes the construction of a 1 million gallon per day clarifier for the Water Plant. The new clarifier would provide redundancy in the event of a mechanical failure or operational problems and replace an undersized clarifier.

The Water System Improvements project also includes the installation of a Data Monitoring System or “SCADA” System for the Water Plant. The “SCADA” System utilizes a modern computer that receives and transmits information allowing continuous and constant communication of plant equipment and operations. The Water Plant typically is in operation 24 hours per day 7 days per week, but is not staffed after 5:00 pm. The “SCADA” system will provide communication to key components to ensure public safety.

2009 Bond Construction News

As an ongoing effort to improve the District’s sanitary sewer system, the Board of Directors awarded a contract to PM Maintenance for sanitary sewer replacement work. The Contractor will begin work October 8, 2012 in the Central Heights area. This sanitary sewer replacement program is to help reduce sanitary sewer overflows at manholes by reducing infiltration and inflow and improve slow moving drains in homes and businesses during periods of heavy rainfall. The project includes televising existing old cement and clay sewer lines, and pipe bursting.  This technique is cost effective, quick and minimally invasive to easements. Your sewer flow will should not be interrupted during the process.
