Project Announcement: San Antonio Water Recycling Center Expansion

August 23, 2023

We are excited to announce HVJ Associates® is part of Garver’s team that was selected to support the expansion of San Antonio's Steven M. Clouse Water Recycling Center. This center recycles treated water for industrial use and commercial landscaping; it is a key component in San Antonio having the country's largest recycled water delivery system. With a service area of almost 500 square miles, the San Antonio Water System (SAWS) provides water recycling to more than 1.2 million people in San Antonio and neighboring cities. 

The presence of alluvium soils at the project site location makes our geotechnical investigation a particularly important part of this project. Subsurface conditions can vary significantly within a short distance, so a thorough analysis will allow the team to develop a cost-effective foundation system for the proposed improvements. 

This project plays a significant role in the 2020 SAWS master plan by expanding capacity and improving hydraulics at the primary and secondary treatment areas, including the primary clarifiers. The updated facility is designed to meet the predicted needs for 2050 peak flows and load requirements. Utilizing recycled water more extensively will be critical for supporting San Antonio's water demands and economic growth, and we look forward to working on this impactful project!
