In 1986, the City of Waco, Texas began construction of the first of four projects designed to renovate the Riverside Water Treatment Plant. The water treatment plant was originally constructed in 1914 and expanded a total of four times over the following 75 years to develop a total rated capacity of thirty million gallons per day (MGD). The treatment plant renovation included the addition of sludge handling facilities, the renovation of chemical feed and filtration facilities, and the reconstruction of one of the plant's two clearwells. The total cost of the renovation exceeded six million dollars, lasted over a period of four years and is currently very near completion.
