City’s permit for Seawolf Park Wastewater Treatment Facility under review and available

Galveston, TX – Nov. 30, 2018 – The City of Galveston applied for a permit for a new Seawolf Park Wastewater Treatment Facility and the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality in turn has issued a draft permit available for review.

The Seawolf Park Wastewater Treatment Facility was damaged and closed during Hurricane Ike in 2008. The City has designated federal funding to replace the plant and has nearly completed the engineering design for the new facility.

The draft permit is available for review until a final permit is issued. The final permit will then be available for review. The City anticipates receiving a final permit in the next six months. Once the City receives a final permit, we will be able to bid the construction work on the wastewater treatment plant.  

The draft permit authorizes a discharge of treated domestic wastewater at an interim volume not to exceed a daily average flow of .005 MGD (million gallons per day) and a final volume not to exceed a daily average flow

The Seawolf Park Wastewater Treatment Facility is one of several projects the City has undertaken since Hurricane Ike. A new wastewater treatment facility on Port Industrial Road, which serves most residents east of 61st Street, became operational in 2016.

The draft permit may be reviewed at City Hall, 823 Rosenberg in Galveston.
