The contract will allow for repairs and upgrades to NAS Corpus Christi’s current wastewater treatment facility, that has been in operation for nearly 80 years.
"Currently, NAS Corpus Christi’s wastewater treatment facility is the only source for industrial and domestic wastewater treatment," said Ray Schroeder, Public Works Department Corpus Christi. "This contract will make the necessary repairs and upgrades to the facility in order to improve the treatment process and meet regulatory requirements."
Upgrading the wastewater treatment facility will ensure that Public Works continues to provide the necessary support for essential operations at NAS Corpus Christi, including the base’s largest tenants; Corpus Christi Army Depot and Chief of Naval Air Training command.
The work to be performed provides for substantial upgrade of domestic and industrial wastewater treatment facilities to be completed while maintaining continuous operation at the facility.
Demolition includes major structures including equipment in the structures, utility connections to the structures, and small ancillary facilities. Additionally, rehabilitation of structures for process and architectural upgrades, removal of two interior doors with hazardous levels of lead based paint, and remediation in three structures to remove Asbestos Containing Material are required.
New major facilities and ancillary systems, such as site electrical power, utilities, and paving and grading are also required in the contract.
Work will be performed in Corpus Christi, Texas, and is expected to be completed by February 2021.
