Eastland County WSD Water Treatment Plant
|CLIENT: Eastland County Water Supply District
|LOCATION: Eastland, TX
eHT provided professional planning, piloting, design and construction services for the Eastland County Water Supply District (WSD) for water treatment plant improvements, including replacement of the existing 6 MGD granular media filtration system with a new ultrafiltration (UF) membrane filter system; sedimentation basin improvements; upgrade of the existing chemical feed systems; upgrade of the existing high service pump station; conversion of existing plant structures to a new solids handling system; upgrade of the existing ground storage tanks; and multiple distribution/transmission system improvements. Because membrane filtration is still considered an innovative technology by the TCEQ, site-specific performance pilot testing was required, and was completed by eHT, including evaluation of a Pall pressure membrane filtration system (microfiltration) and one of the first tests in Texas of a GE pressure filter system (ultrafiltration). The project improved the reliability of the District’s water treatment plant to consistently provide quality water to its customers and comply with TCEQ requirements.
