City of Big Lake Wastewater Treatment Plant

CLIENT: City of Big Lake

In order to maintain compliance with TCEQ regarding its wastewater system, the City of Big Lake (City) selected eHT to provide design and construction management for an expansion its wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) to support an increase in wastewater flows resulting from the recent oil and gas development in the area. The expansion to the City’s WWTP was designed for a capacity of 0.525 million gallons per day (MGD) to meet a design life of 30 years.

Completion of the WWTP design included the addition of a new sequencing batch reactor (SBR) treatment train, an expansion of the existing secondary treatment aeration system, expansion of the existing polymer feed system, and expansion of the existing solids dewatering wedgewire drying bed system. Completion of the project also required completing a major permit amendment for the WWTP expansion.

“The City of Big Lake has been blessed to have a close working relationship with eHT. We have used their services for the past 14 years for all phases of our City’s growth. A new water tower, new wastewater plant, annexation, master planning, paving, landfill issues, new shop building…they cover anything a small City should possibly need. They have saved our sanity when it comes to dealing with TCEQ over violations or new permits. The minute we call on the phone, we know we will receive timely, prompt and professional assistance, no matter what area of expertise is needed. We at the City of Big Lake feel that all employees of eHT are our extended City family and hope to continue this relationship for a very long time.”
