PLW Waterworks Awarded $279M in Texas Projects

HOUSTON, TX — PLW Waterworks, a division of Webber, announces that it has been awarded three waterworks contracts in Texas. The combined value of contracts is $279 million.

The city of Georgetown has selected PLW Waterworks to construct a new 44 MGD Water Treatment Plant to provide drinking water for one of the fastest growing population areas in Texas. The contract value is $175.2 million and is the largest project in Georgetown’s history and the largest project win in PLW’s history. The scope of work includes construction and startup of all the treatment structures for the new plant, a new raw water intake and pump station on South Lake, and a 42-inch waterline connecting the lake and the plant. The project is expected to be completed in early 2026.

The city of San Angelo has also awarded PLW the improvement works of the City’s Hickory Groundwater Treatment Plant to increase production capacity from 8 MGD to 12 MGD for a total value of $52.8 million. The project consists of construction and startup of a triplex low-head pump station, two new 2MG precast concrete clear wells, and the expansion of the oxidation contractor system, the iron removal filtration system, and the radium reduction system. The project is expected to be completed in early 2024.

Finally, PLW will construct a new Wastewater Treatment Plant in Laredo for $51.1 million. The new Manadas Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant will have a wastewater treatment capacity of 4.75 MGD. The project team will also install the gravity pipe outfall to lead the clean water to Manadas Creek Tributary 2. The project is expected to be completed in early 2025.

“We are honored by the trust and responsibility that these three great cities, from different geographies in Texas, have placed on us to build these water facilities,” said PLW Waterworks President Emilio Lopez. “These water plants will largely contribute to the economic and social development and well-being of their communities.”
