Accolade recognizes city officials for their development of a new water-reuse system

City officials in Round Rock, Texas, received the Bob Derrington Reclamation Award from the Texas Section of the American Water Works Assn. for their development of a new water reuse system.

The system will be utilized at the Brushy Creek Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant and constructed in five phases. The reuse water will meet the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality Type I criteria for unrestricted reuse and will provide landscape irrigation for the Old Settlers Park, the Higher Education Campus and Stony Point High School.

The park irrigation should begin in spring of 2012. Following completion of the reuse system, officials project the potable water demand to be reduced by approximately 12 mgd. The new reuse system will prevent the growing city’s predicted water supply shortage and provide an alternative to more expensive conservation strategies.

The Brushy Creek plant will utilize one, 12-disk AquaDisk cloth media filter for the tertiary treatment NTU objective, preceding disinfection. The filter system is designed for an average design daily flow of 3 mgd and peak flow of 6 mgd. Aqua-Aerobic Systems looks forward to the expected outstanding plant performance the reuse system will achieve and the benefits it will provide the city of Round Rock.
