BRYAN - In an effort to keep up with growing demand, the city opened its first new wastewater treatment plant in more than 50 years.
The $18 million, 100-acre Thompsons Creek Wastewater Plant will treat around 2 million gallons a day but can treat 8 million gallons if needed.
Mark Jurica, Bryan's treatment and compliance manager, said the new plant is going to get needed capacity out to the west side. The plant will serve the residential community, the bio-corridor and the Texas A&M Health Science Center.
The new plant is the most energy efficient in the city. The old Turkey Creek plant will be demolished within the next few months.
