Permanent Reuse Water Project Engineering Agreement in Works

- While Wichita Falls officials are busy re-testing the water from the emergency water reuse project they're also making progress on building the permanent project.

Also at Tuesday’s city council meeting councilors will be voting on a resolution that will allow the city manager to execute an engineering service agreement with CDM Smith, Inc.

That agreement will allow the company to start designing the pipeline that will discharge recycled water into lake arrowhead so it can be used again.

City officials say they know some changes will have to be made at the river road waste water treatment plant and getting the engineers in place is the first step.

“We're gonna have the engineer go back through the treatment process, insure that we can do the discharge parameters , we know we have to add some type of phosphors treatment system,” says Public Works Director Russell Schreiber.

Schreiber says after they know what upgrades are needed they can apply for funding from the water board.

This first engineering agreement is expected to cost a little over one million dollars.
