Texas operating region one signed two new contracts this quarter with Tomball Independent School District (TISD)! The District built a new state-of-the-art sports stadium located in Harris County, Texas, the third-most populous county in the United States. This new facility will service all the District’s Intermediate and High school sports programs and the Grand Lakes Junior High and Grand Oaks Elementary schools. The water plant has a service capacity of 450,000 gallons with two 400 GPM wells. The wastewater plant is a sequential batch reactor (SBR) with a total of .350 GPD.
USW Utility Group also secured a contract to operate TISD. The small public water system (PWS) services the Rosehill Elementary school located on 17950 Waller-Tomball Road. The PWS has a capacity of 44,000 gallons in the GST. There is a 1,500-gallon HPT, two distribution pumps, and one 200 GPM submersible well. The challenge with running an elementary PWS is maintaining the distribution residual and maintaining the equipment during the summertime when school is out. An onsite wastewater leach field facility also services the Rosehill Elementary school. There are two lift pumps located at the beginning of the facility in a holding tank that pump the wastewater influent into the plant. The influent mixes through several aerobic basins, and then the effluent is removed out of the clarification basins with two lift pumps into a leach field that is the size of a football field.
