The Robindale Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) expansion and renovation will help BPUB to meet the sewage demands of its growing community.
Work on the construction phase of the Robindale WWTP expansion and renovation began in August 2012. This project will increase the treatment capacity at the Robindale plant from 10 million gallons per day (MGD) to 14.5 MGD. The project is scheduled to be completed in August 2014.
The Robindale WWTP expansion and renovation is the first major design-build wastewater project in Texas. The idea of a design-build project is that work will be streamlined under a single team from concept to completion to save costs and ensure faster delivery.
In addition to the expansion, the Robindale WWTP will also gain many added features. Among those is a new state-of-the-art ultraviolet disinfection system that will reduce the plant’s dependence on chemical disinfectants. A new odor control system will also be built to minimize foul odors through the use of a filtration tower. This should help to minimize the odor in the area of the Robindale plant.
