Houston to Build America’s Largest Water Plant

Posted

The City of Houston is about to start the largest water project in the country. They are going to build a pipeline from the Trinity River to Lake Houston. it will carry 400 million gallons of water per day to Lake Houston. The water purification plant will be state of the art and be located on the western shore of Lake Houston. from there, another pipeline will carry water to the distribution facility located close to 249 and I 45. This will provide water to the greater Houston area for decades to come. The current wells in Harris and Montgomery County are running out of water. Subsidence is evident and we are not really sure what will happen if the aquifers run dry. Could be catastrophic. Wells in Montgomery County are already pumping some salty water and some sy the water has a Sulphur odor. This much needed project is due to be completed in 2021 we were told.
