In order to maintain reliable wastewater treatment to City of Austin customers, Austin Public Works and Austin Water are undertaking a major improvement project within the Walnut Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant. The plant’s initial construction was in 1977. Capacity improvements were constructed in 1987 and again in 1990.
The advanced age of the equipment and obsolescence of the instrumentation and controls in these process areas has led to operational and maintenance challenges. Replacement of the existing pumping systems is necessary to restore reliability to the plant’s hydraulic capacity.
