How to Solve a Good Problem
The City of Kerrville provides non-potable reuse water from its wastewater treatment plant for irrigation of golf courses and recreational areas. The City’s reuse program is so successful that 100 percent of the City’s summertime wastewater effluent flow is reused — and other potential customers have made requests for reclaimed water. The City turned to Freese and Nichols to identify a solution that would expand the availability of this resource. After completing a feasibility study, the FNI team is now designing a 105-million-gallon reuse water storage pond to capture wintertime effluent flow in order to utilize that resource in the summer when reuse demands are at their highest. The project also includes a new pump station and pipeline to deliver the water from the storage pond to the City’s reuse customers.
