Facing the Challenge of Post-Hurricane Wastewater Repairs?

An AUC bypass plant will maintain continuity of service during Wastewater Plant Repairs!


The 2017 hurricane season has been a record breaking year for the U.S. According to the Washington Post, Hurricane Harvey dumped more than 33 trillion gallons of water in Texas, Louisiana and parts of Tennessee and Kentucky. Hurricane Irma devastated Florida and the Caribbean Islands and Hurricane Maria has left Puerto Rico without power or drinking water.


These catastrophic storms not only had a huge impact on lives, homes and roadways, but also wastewater infrastructures, which are vital to public health. The Houston Press reported that more than 31 million gallons of raw sewage spilled across southeast Texas as Harvey struck the area and 800 wastewater treatment facilities were flooded.
