The project manager for the PPG Water Reuse Project says plans should be wrapped up in two weeks and they hope to be taking construction bids in June.
The project will build a pipe from the north side waste water treatment plant to PPG so the company can use the affluent water for their daily operations. So far officials say the project is going well.
Project Manager Rick Branum said, "They did a lot of research upfront, we sort of participated the problems before we started the project and everything's gone fairly smoothly so far. We haven't really had any hiccups. We do have to coordinate with TXDoT to get under the highway, to coordinate with a railroad company to get underneath their right of way but those have been smooth so far.
The whole project is expected to cost $1.6 million. PPG will pay about $400,000 of that.
