This article is part of our feature on the future of wastewater in the U.S.’s fastest growing metro areas. We’re using the Transcend Design Generator to automatically build, expand, or upgrade regional wastewater treatment systems in each of these regions.
In the heart of Texas, Austin’s three rapidly growing counties – Travis, Williamson, and Hays – are consistently making the top 100 list for the fastest-growing regions. Despite the recent major upgrades to the Walnut Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant and the South Austin Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant, the city’s northwest region calls for an innovative wastewater treatment solution.
The Transcend Design Generator (TDG) has heeded this call. We’re excited to announce our design for a compact, yet powerful wastewater treatment plant nestled near Bull Creek and Austin’s primary water source, the Colorado River. It’s worth noting that this isn’t the Colorado River most folks know – this is Austin’s own Colorado River, serving as the city’s lifeline.
Designed to accommodate an increase of 30 million gallons per day (MGD), this modern plant will cater to the primary city’s estimated increase. By integrating advanced technology, this facility will prioritize efficiency with minimal environmental impact, ensuring the Colorado River’s quality remains unimpaired.
In this context, small doesn’t mean less. Our design will embody a compact and efficient solution that doesn’t compromise on capacity or performance, offering a targeted approach to wastewater management that meets the growing needs of northwest Austin. TDG is ready to make a big splash with this small but powerful wastewater solution.
Austin, we’re bringing the future of wastewater treatment to your backyard!
