American wastewater treatment solutions provider Seven Seas Water Group (SSWG) has celebrated the ground-breaking of a brackish water treatment plant in the city of Alice, Texas, US.
This development marks Texas’ first public-private partnership for a reverse-osmosis treatment facility.
The advanced facility will provide a safe and individual water supply to the city.
Once complete, the plant will supply 2.7 million gallons of potable water per day.
City of Alice manager Michael Esparza said: “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.”
Operated and managed by SSWG, the facility is estimated to become operational in the second quarter of 2024.
