The emergency water reuse pipeline is finished and water is running through the system.
The city has been testing all the pieces and parts of the system and so far things are going well and preliminary test show the water is actually a little cleaner then they expected.
Starting Monday the TCEQ will be in town to help public works officials start the official verification tests.
Those tests will last 45 days.
“Micro filtration reverse osmosis require a clean in place every thirty days, that's when the system gets back flushed with certain chemicals, citrus acid, that type of stuff to clean it all out and that happens in a 30 day interval so the TCEQ wants us to run the plant, all the way up to the point where it requires a clean in place and then they want to run it for another 15 days after that,” says Wichita Falls Public Works Director Russell Schreiber.
The TCEQ will be in town through Wednesday.
