Proposed Port O’Connor Water Wellfield

The District continues design and regulatory work on its proposed water wellfield to serve Port O’Connor.  The overall project consists of 4 individual design projects: Five (5) water wells and well collection lines, a raw water storage tank at the District’s water plant, a reverse osmosis system at the water plant to treat the well water, and a discharge outfall to the Intracoastal Canal for the reverse osmosis system.  Funding has been applied for and approved by the Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) and will be closed on soon.  The Environmental Impact Determination has been accepted and approved by the TWDB and the District is awaiting final approval of the Engineering Feasibility Report.  Once all approvals and permits have been obtained and the funding has closed, the District will bid and construct the projects.
