Pine Gully Wastewater Treatment Plan Retrofit (CIP WW9)

This project is the complete infrastructure retrofit of the City's Waste Water System to include the relocation of the treatment plant from Main Street to a site located adjacent to the new Public Works facility. This project contains both phases (phase 1 - design; phase 2 - construction) of the wastewater system retrofit. The City's existing WWTP suffered significant damage during Hurricane Ike due to its location to Galveston Bay.

 

  • Phase I Design – Complete
  • Phase II Construction – August 10, 2021  Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) was awarded. Further construction phasing will be published after bid award.

Seabrook SMART Water Meter Project (CIP FAC6)

AMI water meter conversion program will upgrade manual read water meters to AMI type installations. Project will also include the implementation of behavior-based software – such as WaterSmart, DropCountr, or other providers – using the data provided by the AMI system. This software will help customers identify leaks on the customer side of the meter, and will also promote municipal conservation measures appropriate to their homes or facilities. This project includes replacing all of the City's water meters.
