Project Management - Spotlights

[ARCHIVED] CIP Water & Wastewater Update

Water Tower

The Project Management group works in conjunction with Public Works and Engineering to design and construct improvements to the existing water and wastewater supply, distribution and collections systems as well as creating new supply and distribution infrastructure. For the FY2023-2027 period, water system improvements represent the single largest program with $188.19 million in projects to be funded. The wastewater program follows closely behind with $136.73 million over the same period. League City currently operates ten booster pump stations, four elevated storage tanks, nine groundwater wells, two wastewater treatment plants, 76 lift stations plus all the thousands of linear feet of water mains, sanitary sewer mains and sanitary force mains that connect everything together. 

The Project Management group is currently working on several maintenance and new construction projects for water and wastewater infrastructure in varying stages of study/evaluations, design or construction. Below are updates from our on-going projects.

Southeast Service Area Trunks

This final phase of the Southeast Service Area Trunks project has wrapped up construction. This phase consisted of installing a 24-inch waterline down FM 646 from Dickinson Avenue to South Shore Boulevard, as well as up Tuscan Lakes Boulevard to SH 96. After a four (4) month construction delay due to a utility conflict, the contractor re-mobilized and completed construction in November 2022, including pressure testing. On December 19, 2022, the water main system was activated and placed into service by Public Works. Project close out is in it’s final stages.

36-Inch Water Transmission Main from SH3 to SSH Booster Pump Station 

Installation of 17,730 linear feet of 36-inch water supply transmission line will provide an alternative connection from the SH 3 Booster Pump Station to the South Shore Harbor Water Storage and Booster Pump Station. This line will improve water supply to the East side of the City’s water system by providing a third crossing of Clear Creek and provide water system supply redundancy.

The contractor has two air release valves left to install in the Edgewater Community in Webster, which are expected to be delivered and installed by the end of May 2023.  The contractor completed installation of the 36-inch waterline under SH 3 and the waterline in an area near the Old Galveston Road.  They have also completed an underground crossing of the waterline at the Genco Canal and the jack and bore work at Davis Road and FM 270.  The next major phase of the project, which is approximately 50% of the work, is the installation of the fusible PVC pipe.  The inspection of the fusible PVC is complete.  Out of the over 240 sections of pipe approximately 9 sections will be replaced with new pipe.  The first drill operation is expected to begin on May 15th.
