The District of Houston plans to have the water treatment plant built by this time next year.

Council has hired Tony Edwards as interim Director of Engineering and Development Services, and he says he is pushing all the District of Houston projects along, with priority on the water treatment plant.

“I would like to be in the ground by this time next year for sure,” said Edwards, talking about building the water treatment plant.

Edwards says he will be meeting with consultants and working on the design, and he hopes to have the design approved by the end of July and start work in August or September.

“We have a fair bit of time to get all the designs approved,” he said.
