The East Water Purification Plant Filter Media project repaired and rehabilitated the City of Houston’s East Water Purification Plant (EWPP) process systems along with restoring 36 filter basins and replacing media for Plants 1, 2, and 3.
The pilot plant consisted of installing steel platforms and ladders for piping modifications, progressive cavity pumps, ancillary control panels and mixers. It also involved electrical disconnections and reconnections. The filter work removed and replaced sand and anthracite. PLW Waterworks also constructed a concrete filter wall and installed a waste gullet liner replacement using a half inch of polymer concrete repair material.
