McCarthy has begun preconstruction work on the Barry Rose Water Reclamation Facility (WRF) located in Pearland, Texas. The project is part of the city’s effort to support its rapidly growing population by improving water and wastewater facilities. The new treatment facility will be able to handle 5.0 million gallons per day (MGD).
McCarthy's Contributions to the Project
McCarthy’s scope includes updating the 50-year-old Barry Rose existing plant, assisting with critical maintenance, and replacing mechanical components at the end of operating life to ensure efficient operation until the new facility is complete. Additionally, the project includes the decommissioning and demolition of the nearby Longwood WRF facility which will coincide with the new plant coming online. McCarthy will install a new lift station at the Longwood site and connect to the new Barry Rose facility via a new force-main pipeline running between the two sites over a five-mile route.
Merging the two existing facilities into one will consolidate operating costs and improve disinfection methods by using UV light instead of a chlorine process. Freese and Nichols, Inc. is serving as the design engineer with Ardurra as owner’s advisor.
Construction is expected to start in the beginning of 2024, with an estimated completion schedule of three and a half years.
We're excited to contribute to Pearland's long-term growth by starting this project from a strong foundation. Our preconstruction services have helped position countless water and wastewater facilities for valuable upgrades that allow them to better serve their communities.
