Project Overview

Area water providers have come together to finance a major expansion of the Northeast Water Purification Plant. The expansion will more than triple the plant’s output of fresh drinking water and help meet the mandate to reduce our area’s dependence on groundwater.

While this project is complex, its footprint should not extend beyond property already owned by the City of Houston at the Northeast Water Purification Plant and Lake Houston. Construction will begin in 2017 using new progressive design-build techniques, and be totally online in 2024.
