On a recent KSHN Party Line Program, Liberty City Manager Tom Warner shared the news concerning the building of a levee to protect the city’s waste water treatment plant across from Boomerang in south Liberty. The waste water treatment plant most recently flooded during Hurricane Harvey, as well as the floods of 2015, 2016 and 2017. This project is being made possible by a Federal Hazard Mitigation Grant. The project is nearly a 6 million dollar project. City Manager Tom Warner said the city will have to pay a $1.5 million portion of that cost, however the balance of funds, $4.5 million will come from the state of Texas. Then Liberty City Council will, consider final approval of the plan at their August 11th meeting as well as move forward to start the bid process for the project. Warner said bids requests should go out in August, and will be received in September. City Council then hopes to award the contract in October. Then If all goes well, the levee construction project should start sometime after the first of 2021.
