Water officials make plans to pay for WTP 4 cost over-runs

The most recent update to the status of Water Treatment Plant 4 reveals some cost over-runs.

Austin Water's Director Greg Mesaros says they are forecasting a 1 to 2 percent increase in cost, "Our original estimate for the construction was $359 million and now we're likely forecastingthat the final cost will come in in the mid 360's."

Mesaros says they spent extra money to reduce interruptions to surrounding neighbors, as well as, more money than planned to protect the area's salamanders, currently proposed to be listed as endangered. He says they hope to sell another piece of property they originally intended to build on to bring the project back on budget.
