Construction on Potable Reuse Pipeline Moves Forward

WICHITA FALLS, TX -

Plans are moving forward on the Permanent Indirect Potable Reuse System Pipeline Project. 

Wichita Falls City Councilors awarded the $9,766,399 project to S & J Construction at the city council meeting Tuesday morning. 

Officials opened up bids for the project on September 29, 2015 and since then officials say they've received 11 bids.

Russell Schreiber, who is the Director of Public Works, says they decided to go with S & J Construction because it would be more cost effective for the city. 

"We do believe this is going to be a good water management strategy for the City of Wichita Falls in the long term and the sooner we can get it in place and operational the better off we will be," said Schreiber. 

The 17 mile long pipeline will run east from the Waste Water Treatment Plant to the business park.

"The reason we chose that route is because there is a possibility that as the business park grows, there will be industries in there that can utilize re-use water for irrigation, cooling water or maybe process water," said Schreiber. 

From the business park, Schreiber says the pipeline will head straight out to Lake Arrowhead. 

Construction on the pipeline is set to begin after the first of the year.
