The Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) approved $42 million in financial assistance June 24 for wastewater system improvements in Cleburne.

The assistance is a $41 million loan and $1 million in loan forgiveness from the Clean Water State Revolving Fund.

Cleburne will use the assistance to finance planning, acquisition, design and construction costs associated with wastewater system improvements.

In addition to the loan forgiveness, the city could save approximately $8.4 million by using the Clean Water State Revolving Fund, TWDB said in a news release.

Cleburne plans to use the money to increase the wastewater treatment facility’s overcall capacity and reuse capacity for both indirect potable reuse and direct non-potable reuse, the news release said.

The project also includes construction of a new pump station and pipeline improvements to help the city meet future water supply demands.

The TWDB is the state agency charged with collecting and disseminating water-related data, assisting with regional planning and preparing the state water plan for the development of the state’s water resources.

The TWDB administers cost-effective financial assistance programs for the construction of water supply, wastewater treatment, flood control, and agricultural water conservation projects.
