Residents in the Burleson County community of Beaver Creek are looking to pool their water resources.
Currently, the approximately 300 homes in that area have their own private water wells. Beaver Creek residents would like to see one water system serving everyone. But it will take voter approval of a $3.5 million bond for that to happen.
To get the ball rolling, a special meeting of the Burleson County Commissioners Court has been scheduled for 7 p.m. Wednesday. Commissioners are expected to appoint a five-member, temporary board for the newly-formed Beaver Creek Water District.
Burleson County Judge Mike Southerland says it's the first step toward initiating a bond election for the proposed water system. Proponents plan on placing the issue on the November general election ballot.
