LOCATION Rosenberg, TX
Water Supply and Treatment
of 4" - 10" pipelines
of the City’s Alternative Water Supply is Provided
The primary goal of the Seabourne Creek Reclaimed Water System is to maximize the City’s ability to treat and distribute reuse water. Utilizing reuse water is a major component of the City’s overall strategy to reduce their reliability on groundwater in accordance with the FBSD mandates and to achieve the City’s plans of overall water conservancy and sustainability. The current phase of reclaimed treatment and distribution infrastructure can support up to 280,000 gpd of reclaimed water use. The facilities and pipelines are expandable up to 840,000 gpd of reclaimed water production and distribution.
The City of Rosenberg tasked our team to prepare a Reclaimed Water Master Plan to identify potential reuse water uses throughout the entire city, construct treatment and distribution infrastructure, provide a plan for the techniques needed to design a treatment and pumping system, and determine the funding resources and property acquisition necessary to achieve these objectives.
In order to serve the City of Rosenberg’s new Seabourne Creek Nature Park and Regional Sports Complex and help meet the Fort Bend County Subsidence District mandate, our team began the Seabourne Creek Reclaimed Water System project in 2011 and recently completed its 5th and 6th projects in a series of facility and pipeline infrastructure improvements. The Seabourne Creek Reclaimed Water System utilizes over 40,000 LF of 4”-10” pipelines, tertiary wastewater treatment, a 500,000 gallon earthen storage pond, cloth media filter units and a 4-pump skid to treat and distribute up to 280,000 gpd of reclaimed water. The system currently serves an annual average of 170,000 gallons per day of reclaimed water to sports ball fields, high school fields, parks and trails, a duck pond, and even helps sustain an artificially created wetlands and native prairie attraction. The City has invested over $3.5M to construct, operate, and maintain this reclaimed water system over the last 10 years.
