(DALLAS – March 21, 2011) The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has awarded $485,000 to the City of Bryan, Texas, to replace the aging and deteriorating Turkey Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant. The existing plant currently has insufficient treatment capacity to serve the existing population and is located adjacent to residential housing. The new Thompsons Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant will serve the southwest portion of the city and will be constructed on a 107-acre tract of city-owned land near the Brazos River, away from residential areas.
