By Reyna Johnson, PE and John Van Hoosier, EIT
During spring 2020, a 104-inch-diameter fiberglass-reinforced polymer gravity interceptor, tucked tightly between the West Fork of the Trinity River and Interstate 30, experienced a critical failure. This interceptor is just upstream of its largest wastewater treatment facility.
