Georgetown has selected PLW Waterworks to undertake the largest project in the city’s history. The contract, worth USD 175 million (approximately €160 million), consists of the construction of a treatment plant to supply drinking water to one of the fastest-growing population areas in Texas. The scope of work includes construction and commissioning of the structures for the new plant, a new water intake, and a pumping station on South Lake. The project is scheduled for completion in 2026.
The City of San Angelo has also selected PLW Waterworks, a subsidiary of Webber and Cadagua, to upgrade the Hickory groundwater treatment plant. Scheduled for completion in 2024, the project will expand the infrastructure’s capacity by 30 million liters per day (8 MGD) to over 45 million liters per day (12 MGD). The contract value is USD 53 million (about €48.5 million), and the work includes construction and commissioning of a triplex low-head pump station, two new precast concrete clear wells and the expansion of the oxidation contractor system.
The third contract awarded to PLW Waterworks consists of building the Manadas Creek wastewater treatment plant in Laredo for USD 51 million (about €47 million). This project will require the construction of a a wastewater treatment plant with a capacity of 18 million liters per day (4.75 MGD) as well as a gravity outfall pipe to carry the treated water to Manadas Creek Tributary 2.
