Title

Ordinance - Third and Final Reading of an Ordinance Approving the Conveyance of Certain Real Property in Fee Simple as a Metering Station Site and the Assignment of a Certain Utility Easement and Access Easement to the Trinity River Authority for the Maintenance and Operation of Regional Wastewater Facilities

Recommendation

Utility Staff recommends approval of the Ordinance.

 

Description/History

The City acquired land and easements necessary to build and serve the wastewater metering station for the Mountain Creek drainage basin. The metering station is in the Mountain Creek basin and will provide continued wastewater service for the areas and developments in the southwest corridor of the City’s incorporated limits and ETJ. The City contracted with the Trinity River Authority (TRA) in the Mountain Creek Regional Wastewater System (MCRWS) for the discharge and treatment of wastewater flows generated from Mansfield in this basin. The Somerset Development was the first development to spur the necessity to provide sewer service within this basin.   

 

Justification

In August of 2015, the City Council approved a contract with the TRA becoming an additional contracting party with the TRA MCRWS. According to Section 6 - Metering of Wastewater, in the agreement, the City is required to purchase all necessary easements and land to construct a metering station for the point of entry into the MCRWS. Upon completion of construction, the City is then required to assign all associated easements and land to the TRA for maintenance and operation.
