Wastewater Treatment Plant Headworks Project 

The council received a presentation on the $1.5 million Carters Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant Headworks Projects, which is on the consent agenda for tonight’s regular meeting. In the first step in the treatment process, untreated wastewater flows into the headworks from the collection system. Large objects and sediment are removed so the wastewater can continue through the rest of the process.

Although key equipment is worn out and needs either replacement or rehabilitation, this project includes only items needed to restore functionality to existing equipment. The improvements are for the screw lift pumps, grit and grease removal systems, oiler system, odor controls and junction box, which will allow the headworks to operate until information is received from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality about future permit restrictions, which could require major changes to the headworks structure.
