Name: Harris County Wastewater Treatment Plant Expansion
Location: Bridgeland, Harris County, TX
Owner: The Howard Hughes Corporation
Architect/Engineer: Brown and Gay Engineers, Inc.
Bridgeland is a development of The Howard Hughes Corporation and has been named the nation’s number one master planned community by the National Association of Home Builders. Planned for 65,000+ residents, Bridgeland is currently home to 5,700 residents. Located 27 miles from downtown Houston, its only wastewater treatment facility needed expanding to keep pace with the development’s current population growth rate.
Started in 2012, this expansion project nearly tripled the treatment capacity of the plant when construction concluded in early 2014. Once complete, the expansion facility was turned over to the Harris County Municipal Utility District 418 who owns and operates the plant.
