(City of Alice, Texas) – Seven Seas Water Group (“SSWG”), a multinational provider of Water-as-a-Service® (“WaaS”) solutions, is pleased to announce the start of construction for the City of Alice brackish water treatment plant, marking a historic milestone as the first public-private partnership project for a reverse-osmosis treatment plant in the state of Texas. The groundbreaking ceremony was witnessed by representatives from the City of Alice, Texas Legislature, regional officials, and members of Seven Seas Water Group.

This state-of-the-art facility will empower the City of Alice with self-sustaining and drought-proof water, providing a safe, dependable, and independent supply of water. Upon its completion, the plant will provide the city with 2.7 million gallons of potable water daily.

Projected to commence water delivery in the second quarter of 2024, the plant will be operated and maintained by Seven Seas Water Group.  The new plant guarantees the contracted volume and quality specified by the city’s drinking water standards and feeds the city’s water storage and distribution system at a fixed, cost-effective rate.

Alice’s City Manager, Michael Esparza, conveyed his passion for the project, stating, “This project signifies a tremendous leap forward for our community and underscores our commitment to ensuring reliable and safe water security for all of our residents.”

Henry Charrabé, SSWG’s CEO, emphasized the efficiency of this partnership, stating, “Our collaboration with the City of Alice management and key state agencies showcases the project’s advantages when public and private interests align. These synergies drive cost-effective, time-saving solutions that benefit local communities and foster long-term regional growth. The City of Alice is pioneering the blueprint of what effective decentralized water and wastewater public-private-partnerships should look like everywhere across the United States.”
