North Kuehler 30-inch to 33-inch Interceptor Project

This major wastewater Capital Improvement Project will upgrade and replace multiple interceptors that have become damaged due to aging. Interceptors are large pipes that receive flow from many sewer lines and conduct the wastewater to a treatment plant. This will greatly improve wastewater infrastructure and increase transmission capacity to maintain compliance with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.

This Project will be separated into two bid packages, each with a different contractor.

Work on this Project began in October 2020 and is scheduled to be completed by October 2021, weather permitting.
