Whisper Valley 0.1 MGD Wastewater Treatment Facility

As part of a Public Improvement District this project was ultimately designed to be owned and operated by the City of Austin. The treatment plant is the first phase of several expansions to accommodate the wastewater flows from the surrounding community as it develops.

Special modifications were incorporated into this package plant to accommodate the short term low wastewater flows generated in a new subdivision. As the neighborhood grows simple mechanical adjustments will be made to reach the plants intended capacity of 0.1 MGD.

  • Preliminary Treatment – Mechanical bar screens
  • Secondary Treatment – Activated sludge
  • Tertiary Treatment – Disk filter
  • Disinfection – Contact basin
