The city of Pflugerville took steps forward on several water-based initiatives at Pflugerville City Council’s March 10 meeting.

Council approved a nearly $200,000 professional services agreement with Garver for its Surface Water Treatment Plant expansion project, located near the intersection of Pflugerville Parkway and Weiss Lane. Per the language of the agreement, Garver is to begin work within 10 days of its notice to proceed, based on the following schedule included in city documents:

  • Project management and coordination: estimated start on March 20 and completion on June 20

  • Raw water characterization: estimated start and completion on March 20

  • Water Treatment Plant site visit and staff interviews: estimated start and completion on March 20

  • Conceptual processes feasibility study: estimated start on March 20 and completion on may 20

  • Process alternatives workshop; estimated start and completion on May 20

  • Water supply alternatives assessment: estimated start on March 20 and completion on April 20

  • Following completion of its task schedule, Garver will report back to council with a presentation on June 20


Following Garver's June 20 presentation, City Manager Sereniah Breland said the city will then begin design processes for the plant and begin its selection process for an engineer.

Council also approved a supplement to the city’s professional services agreement with DCS Engineering, LLC for water treatment plant engineering services, in the amount of just over $253,000. The approved services are affiliated with the city’s High Service Pumping Station expansion project, located near Wolf Pack Drive and Weiss Lane.

As per the scope of services provided by city staff, this project will help extend capacity at the city’s SWTP to roughly 2024, as well as continue to meet requirements set by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. The services include both bidding and construction management, as well as outline a May 16, 2021 construction close-out.

In a separate agenda item, council awarded an $85,000 supplemental professional services contract to DCS Engineering for “emergency compliance and rehabilitation work” at Pflugerville’s SWTP. The scope of services include plant flows and flow projections, Lake Pflugerville operations, water membrane trains, chemical systems and TCEQ submittals, among others. The supplement would build off the initial professional services awarded to DCS Engineering that ran from Oct. 25, 2019-Feb. 29, per city documents.


Council also approved a nearly $65,000 supplemental professional services contract to DCS Engineering for compliance and rehabilitation, with the same scope of services mentioned previously.
