Leased plants save real estate development with fully financed turnkey groundwater supply and wastewater treatment

Harris County, the most populous county in Texas, has been growing at more than double the national average since 1990. By 2040, 6.3 million residents are expected to call it home. Unfortunately, explosive development has raised costs and increased regulation.

A developer working on a project in Harris County’s Lago Bello Municipal Utility District No. 1A was facing the prospect of having to abandon a development due to the prohibitively high cost of providing water and wastewater infrastructure for the project.

The client found that leasing plants from Seven Seas Water Group would allow the project to move forward by enabling it to fully finance the costs of both a wastewater treatment plant and a water treatment plant for the development.

The greenfield project is part of Seven Seas Water Group’s continually-expanding list of turnkey design-build water and wastewater treatment plant solutions offered.

The solutions for the Lago Bello project included:

  • A water supply facility that can withdraw groundwater at a minimum rate of 1,000 GPM and that complies with the current design criteria of the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.
  • A wastewater treatment plant that treats 150,000 GPD average daily flow of domestic wastewater.
