Water Quality & System Information

Brushy Creek MUD Superior Water Quality

Brushy Creek has two sources of raw water that is treated for public consumption and use. Our primary source of water is Lake Georgetown and our secondary source is ground water from a well field located off Sam Bass Road.

All District raw water is treated by a state of the art microfiltration plant. Water is passed through a semi-permeable membrane that filters the water before it is sent into the distribution system. This membrane will filter out particles that are too small for the human eye to see, providing a safe, clear, sparkling water that is then treated and sent to the customer. 

“Brushy Creek Superior Water” signs located at each entrance to the District reflect a designation given to water systems that meet criteria set up by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ). These criteria include: number of water employees, physical condition of the treatment facility, bacteriological testing over a 24 month period, primary water quality standards, chemical quality of the water, capacity standards, and operating standards. All of these standards must be met on a continuing basis. If the criteria are not met on an annual basis, TCEQ will request removal of the signs. District staff works hard to provide its residents with a “Superior Water” designation. 

If you have any concerns always notify Customer Service of the problem. This allows District staff to keep record of all incidents. Customer Service may be reached at 512-255-7871 x1.
