Sessom Creek Improvements Phases - 1 & 2

Phase 1

In 2013, the City hired the engineering firm RPS Espey to evaluate the condition of Sessom Creek from Canyon Road to Aquarena Springs Drive. In their report, RPS Espey identified several conceptual level solutions. The highest priority project, according to this report, is to relocate the exposed wastewater trunk main in Sessom Creek from N.LBJ to Canyon Road.

The Edwards Aquifer Habit Conservation Plan (HCP) and the Engineering Department have teamed up to design and construct these repairs and other restoration work along Sessom Creek.  

The project consists of the following improvements:

o    Sessom Drive Sanitary Sewer – the replacement of up to approximately 1,800 linear feet of 12-inch sanitary sewer line from N. LBJ Drive to Canyon Road along Sessom Drive.

o    Stabilizing Sessom Creek from N.LBJ to Canyon Road to prevent sedimentation from entering the San Marcos River

o    Repairing two (2) separate drainage outfalls along Sessom Drive and Sessom Creek

o    Total estimated construction cost is approximately $2.0-3.0M.  The HCP has budgeted approximately $1.0 million towards these construction cost. 

Construction should occur in 2020.

Phase 2

This project will continue the restoration work started in Phase 1.  

The project consists of the following improvements:

•    Sessom Drive Sanitary Sewer – the replacement of up to approximately 1,700 linear feet of 8 to 12-inch sanitary sewer line along Sessom Creek from Canyon Road to Canyon Fork

•    Stabilizing Sessom Creek from Canyon Road to Canyon Fork to prevent sedimentation from entering the San Marcos River

Total estimated construction cost is approximately $2.0-3.0M.  The HCP has budgeted approximately $1.0 million towards the construction cost. 

Construction is expected to begin in 2022.
