The $33-million project has been in the plans for years and will finally break ground in fall 2021. The expansion will increase the plant’s capacity levels by 40%.

The work includes new disk filters, new UV system, new IPR pump, new final clarifiers, new aeration basins and blowers, new headworks, new sludge pump station, sludge dewatering improvements, chlorine contact rehab, and influent pump station improvements.

The City of Cleburne is working with Freese & Nichols for the design of this project and the construction will be led by Archer Western Construction.
