Hewitt Engineering Inc. has recently designed three reclaimed wastewater ponds and pump stations for projects in the City of Kerrville. These ponds receive reclaimed wastewater from the City of Kerrville to be used for irrigation purposes. The three separate projects were completed for Schreiner University, Riverhill Country Club and the City of Kerrville Sports Center. The projects included preparation of the reclaimed wastewater pond and pump station plans, sections, details and technical specifications, design of the pump station intake structure, piping, gauges, meters and valve system, design of the reclaimed wastewater pump and motor and design of a prefabricated metal building to house the pump, piping and electrical equipment.
This project consisted of preparing plans and specifications for over 8,200 linear feet of 6-inch reclaimed wastewater lines across the Schreiner University campus. The project connected to the on-campus reclaimed wastewater pond and pump station and delivered reclaimed wastewater across the campus and into the existing irrigation system.
This project consisted of designing an Aquifer Storage and Recovery (ASR) water supply well 610 feet down to the bottom of the Trinity Aquifer and then extending an exploratory well to the bottom of the Ellenburger Aquifer.
Construction has started for the first part of this project located along SH 39 near McNeil Street. The purpose of the project is to provide wastewater service to existing and future nonresidential connections in the central portion of the City and the businesses along Junction Highway (SH 27) in the eastern portion of the City. The proposed wastewater system improvements consist of the installation of new 6-12 inch gravity sewer lines in the central and eastern portions of the City along SH 39 and SH 27.
