The City of Houston (City), like many cities across the country, is working to improve resiliency and reduce operations and maintenance costs. One project to help accomplish this goal involves a large-scale facility consolidation on the city’s west side. The project’s primary objective is to divert flow from the Chelford City Municipal Utility District (MUD) Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) via deep gravity sewer to an existing City WWTP facility that has capacity to process current and projected future flows.
