The bore project undertaken by Lakeway Municipal Utility District involved installing a low-pressure sewer lateral from a house to the main. The total length of the bore was approximately 30 feet, with a considerable portion of it, 26 feet to be precise, comprised of solid limestone. The only non-rocky area was the ditch where a water main had been previously installed. This presented a significant challenge that required specialized equipment and expertise.
