[ARCHIVED] Regional Water Treatment Plant Begins Service to Customers

After an unprecedented level of cooperation among 40 Government and private sector groups that partnered with Missouri City, the City's new $53 million Regional Water Treatment Plant was toasted with water from the facility during a special ribbon cutting ceremony to mark its official opening on June 12. The event also marks a milestone for reducing groundwater usage and for teamwork and cooperative on the largest project ever undertaken by the City.

The plant recently won the Texas Public Works Association's Project of the Year Award for "Environmental Projects at least $25 million but less than $75 million."

About 100 stakeholders, elected officials, and residents sampled water from the treatment plant that was "pure water" and with flavors added to taste like lemon/lime, strawberry, orange and even pomegranate and feasted on delicacies provided by a local restaurant as they viewed a slideshow highlighting the timeline for the five-year competion of the plant and took guided tours through the state-of-the-art facility.

The plant is currently producing two million gallons of water per day and will expand in two phases to produce 21 million gallons in 2017 and to 33 million gallons in 2027 as the population continues to increase.
