San Patricio Municipal Water District Wastewater Regionalization Study

San Patricio Municipal Water District Wastewater Regionalization Study

We are helping the San Patricio Municipal Water District develop a strategy for wastewater regionalization and evaluate its role in this important service to the communities of San Patricio County.    The District provides water to industries and communities in San Patricio County now.  In 2017, the District began evaluating the potential for a regional wastewater treatment system to consolidate wastewater service, support area cities faced with rising wastewater treatment costs, and offset water demand with a source of treated wastewater for use by area industries.  We are assisting the District in this project, performing condition assessments for five municipal plants, and developing some initial alternatives for consolidation of services.  This initial evaluation provided valuable input and indicates that regionalization may be viable.  But additional work is needed.
