The Fort Bend Water Control & Improvement District (WCID) No.2 provides water, wastewater collection, and treatment to roughly 30,000 residents over 7,260 acres within the City of Houston, Stafford, Missouri City, Sugar Land, and un-incorporated Fort Bend County. Parts of the district were suffering from low water accountability; frequent waterline breaks and large volumes of stormwater inflow and infiltration into their sewer system. Most of the systems were more than 50 years old and had reached their design service life – causing the district to embark on a nearly decade-long rehabilitation project.
Our team supported the district by identifying problem areas within the various subdivisions. Based on the findings, the district rehabilitated over 66,000 linear feet of 4” to 16” waterline and over 77,000 linear feet of 6” to 42” sanitary sewer lines. 210 sanitary sewer manholes were replaced or rehabilitated by reworking the inverts, sidewalls and frames with a combination of cementitious grout and epoxy to help prevent inflow and infiltration and deter future deterioration from H2S gases.
Our team prepared construction drawings, technical specifications, contract documents and provided construction phase services on seven different projects over 10-years. By investing in their infrastructure, the district has renewed the service life of approximately 10% of its water and sanitary sewer system. It also increased pressure maintenance, decreased waterline breaks, and reduces wasted drinking water.
