Manvel Economic Development Corp (MEDC) has announced a $2 million project to expand water and sewer facilities serving Texas 288. The project will promote economic development and improve fire protection along Texas 6 and Texas 288.
"The City of Manvel praises the MEDC on this initiative to provide the tools for Manvel's future growth," said Mayor Delores Martin. "Charles F. Kettering said high achievement always take place in the framework of high expectation. That's what MEDC is doing with this project."
The project includes a sixteen inch (16") water line that will extend approximately eight thousand (8,000) linear feet from the Burger Barn on Texas 6 west to Texas 288. A six inch line in the general vicinity is inadequate for future development, Martin said.
The project also identifies a new wastewater main in the same area. It is anticipated that a City-maintained Lift Station, combined with a six inch (6") force main and eight inch (8") gravity sewer will extend the approximately eight thousand (8,000) linear feet and will be the ultimate design. A four inch (4") main in the general vicinity is not adequate for future development.
Manvel, TX is located at the crossroads of Texas 288 and Texas 6 south of Houston, TX. It is east of the Sugar Land area and borders Pearland on the south. Sugar Land and Pearland are among the fastest growing cities in Texas. Manvel is home to several master-planned communities including Sedona Lakes, Southfork and Rodeo Palms.
