Good Progress Being Made on the City's Permanent Reuse Project


Crews are making strides in the Permanent Indirect Potable Reuse project in Wichita Falls but there are a few possible change orders to the project.

The city council will consider approving change orders to the two phases of the project at Tuesday's meeting. The Public Works Director, Russell Schreiber, says change orders are very common for large projects like these and the original costs came under what was budgeted so they are prepared for these additional costs in the budget.

The first phase is the installation on the pipeline which is 90 percent complete and is expected to be done by summer. The change order for this phase is miscellaneous additions to the original contract which will cost around $141 thousand dollars With a 13 day extension.

"We decided that we wanted to add some additional air relief valves. It was originally designed by a local firm and then we handed it off to a larger engineering firm and they ran their analysis and they said you know what, let's put a few more of these in just to be on the safe side," Russell Schreiber, Public Works Director.

The second phase is changes to the wastewater treatment plant, which will cost around $255 thousand with a 59 day extension. It is 45 percent complete and will now be done in December, versus the fall. The change order includes different maintenance work.
