The plant will meet additional demand for clean drinking water caused by the area's growing population and lessen dependence on groundwater.

The project, expected to be online by 2024, will increase the output of freshwater by 320 million gallons per day and will include:

  • construction of new water purification facilities on the City of Houston property adjoining the existing plant;
  • building an intake and pump in Lake Houston; and
  •  running a larger pipeline from the lake to the plant using an existing route.
