LNV Recommendations for City’s Water Distribution System

May 2018

BEEVILLE, TX – After facing recent water quality challenges and issuing a water boil notice in 2016, the City of Beeville (City) contracted LNV to provide an evaluation of the water system and their Nitrification Action Plan (NAP).  The objectives of the study were to identify areas in which chloramine operations may be improved to further mitigate potential nitrification and to further define the NAP response actions to be performed by the City if nitrification is detected and to establish triggers for a free chlorine conversion response.

Logan Burton, from LNV, and Marc Santos, from Hazen and Sawyer, presented the results of the study along with some valuable recommendations for the City regarding the operation and capital improvements for their water system.

The city’s water system includes one surface water treatment plant, one groundwater well, 11 groundwater storage tanks, four elevated water tanks and one hydropneumatics tank. The system also has eight pump stations, five pressure planes and over 140 miles of pipelines and 5,000 active connections.

The study included an evaluation of the City’s Morrill Water Treatment Plant (WTP), current water system infrastructure and chloramine operations. The study determined that the system has several components that may be optimized to improve chloramine treatment and mitigation of nitrification. In addition, some new installations are required to improve system performance to stabilize chloramine residuals and minimize water age. LNV’s system review evaluated four key areas of the system: the WTP, storage tanks, distribution system, water quality and Nitrification Action Plan (NAP).

LNV hopes that these recommendations are proactive in monitoring future issues that may come to the surface and avoid any forthcoming complications.
