Galveston Wastewater Treatment Plant: Infrastructure Rehabilitation

Galveston, TX
U.S. Water Services Corporation - USW Utility Group - Galveston Wastewater Treatment Plant Rehabilitation

Gulf Copper Dry Dock is located off the coast of Galveston, TX on Pelican Island. The wastewater treatment plant is a 20,000 GPD package plant that USW Utility Group (USWUG) was awarded an annually renewable contract for operations and maintenance in February 2020.  USWUG provided the client with an initial facility assessment that noted multiple structural and operational issues.  The most notable deficiency was the facility was completely corroded from the top four feet making it almost impossible to access to operate and maintain the treatment process. Gulf Copper was concerned about the cost related to the much-needed rehabilitation. Through a number of meetings, it was negotiated that the facility could be rehabilitated by the certified welders of Gulf Copper, and the maintenance and replacement of equipment could be handled by USW Utility Group alongside our local and reliable sub-contractors. The facility was idled on July 22, 2020, and is being prepared to go back online on September 22, 2020.
