  • Comments: The overall cost of the project was $984,000. The overall project improved the screening process allowing a clean facility and smooth operation. Pumps have not had any trash clogs since the project was completed. The environmental liability reduced (permit effluent exceedances) to zero. The filter and the components have an estimated life of twenty five years. The air compressor has a five year life span. The operational costs compared to other filters acquiring the same results are much lower. Media in other types of filters are replaced at regular intervals, but the media used in this filter should last the life of the filter itself. The water discharged from this facility will be cleaner than is required and will enhance the water quality in the Trinity River.
