Turkey Creek Wastewater Treatment Facility

Texas Business reports:  The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has awarded $485,000 to the City of Bryan to replace the aging and deteriorating Turkey Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant. 

The existing plant currently has insufficient treatment capacity to serve the existing population and is located adjacent to residential housing. 

The new Thompsons Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant will serve the southwest portion of the city and will be constructed on a 107-acre tract of city-owned land near the Brazos River, away from residential areas. It will be built west of Highway 47 away from Bryan residences. The plant is expected to be operational in early 2012.

The new plant will replace the Turkey Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant, an aging facility located near the La Brisa and Westwood Main subdivisions in west Bryan.

 The City of Bryan’s water services department provides water to 21,587 connections and handles 21,113 sewer connections.

Since February of 2003, the Water Services Department’s Turkey Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant has provided reclaimed water for irrigation and pond maintenance to the Traditions Country Club.    Over the past five years, the program has provided an average of twenty-seven million gallons of recycled water per year for golf course irrigation.
