League City was recently awarded the Environmental Project of the Year for 2019 by the Texas Chapter of the American Public Works Association (APWA) for work on a capital improvement project related to the rerouting of the Dallas Salmon Wastewater Treatment Plant effluent line to meet requirements mandated by the Texas Commission on Environment Quality (TCEQ). The reconstruction of North Kansas Avenue was added to the overall scope of the project due to the layout of the effluent line under the roadway and because of a cost savings of doing the projects jointly. Overall design of the two projects included wetland delineation, wildlife assessments, historical district coordination, tree preservation, Army Corps of Engineers permitting, and significant public involvement/input. Performing the reconstruction of North Kansas Avenue along with the effluent line allowed the City to also address drainage concerns in the historic district along North Kansas. As a result of the project, a major trunk line was installed down North Kansas and effectively eliminated any ponding associated with a two-year storm event and greatly reduced the ponding associated with a 100-year storm event, by two feet in some locations. Construction of the new effluent line was completed and certified one month ahead of the deadline mandated by TCEQ. It was also completed under budget. Reconstruction of North Kansas Avenue was completed five months ahead of schedule and also under budget. Staff from the Wastewater, Public Works, and Project Management Departments who worked on the two projects were recognized by City Council at their May 11 meeting.
