Veritatis Splendor Project (In Planning)
July 16, 2021
In February of this year, SMWSC was approached by an organization (RCI) planning to build a Christian community is our water service area (CCN). You can learn about this community here. This community is north of FM 16, and is currently planned for 70 homesites, educational facilities, recreational facilities, and a facility for prayer and worship.
We are in the early stages of discussion and planning with RCI on the logistics and costs of providing water service to this community. Groundbreaking has already taken place for the community, and they are moving forward with construction. They hope to have water flowing to the community by the end of this year.

Water Well #4 Project (In Process)
July 16, 2021
Over two years ago, Water Well #2 became infected with iron bacteria. This rendered Well #2 unusable. Despite several efforts to eliminate the iron bacteria at a significant cost, Water Well #2 could not be recovered. Water Well #2 was SMWSC’s deepest and highest volume well. The Board of Directors immediately began a search for a new well site. Although several sites were located, test wells and water sampling revealed high levels of iron bacteria. A new well site was finally acquired (at a cost of $55,000.00) in the North Pointe sub-division. Water samples from the test well drilled there resulted in high volume, high capacity, and high-quality water.
We are currently clearing the land for the well and preparing to lay a six-inch main line from the well site to Water Plant #1. Drilling should begin in about 6 weeks. Total cost for this well with the connection to Plant #1 is estimated to be upwards of $450,000.00. Due to stringent testing requirements and required approvals by TCEQ, we hope to have Well #4 on-line before the fall.
Stay tuned for updates.
