City of Killeen receives briefing and tour of Belton Water Treatment Plant


Meeting was part of a joint Special Council workshop with the Water Control and Improvement District

KILLEEN, Texas (June 30, 2023) – Killeen City Council members and staff received a tour and briefing of the Belton Water Treatment Plant (5200 Water Works Road) on June 28, as a part of a joint Special City Council Workshop with the Water Control and Improvement District (WCID).

WCID #1 supplies water to the cities of Killeen, Harker Heights, Copperas Cove, Belton, Nolanville and the Fort Cavazos Military Reservation.

WCID staff has informed all municipalities it services that the plant is in need of improvements to keep up the maintenance, which would cost about $29.3 million in total for maintenance only. That cost would split among the government customer entities in the district.

 “City Council members are in charge of spending the public’s money and seeing that they choose wisely, so coming out here to see why it’s needed firsthand, as opposed to just hearing us tell them about it, is very beneficial,” Allen Woelke, engineer and consultant for WCID, said.

Council members and staff began and ended the meeting with a briefing, and also toured/viewed the four plants inside the Lake Belton plant. They were able to see the scope, size and condition of the plant to get a better understanding of the needs.

The plant has the capacity of 90 million gallons of water a day and about 250,000 customers are serviced daily.
