Village Creek Water Reclamation Facility

Ft. Worth, TX

100,800 cfm

Project Completed: 2005

BacTee flooring used with both shredded wood media and inorganic biofilter media.

4 cell biofilter

The award-winning Village Creek Water Reclamation Facility treats wastewater from over 880,000 people and many businesses in the 23 communities it serves.  The plant, which can process 166 million gallons of wastewater each day, is owned and operated by the City of Ft. Worth.  The facility is particularly important to the surrounding community.  During the dry months caused by the intense Texas heat, the Trinity River may be composed of up to 95% wastewater, and the performance of the Village Creek facility is critical to the river's vitality and usefulessness as a water source for those downstream.

The odor control system upgrade was expanded in 2005.  An organic biofilter was added so that the BacTee aeration flooring system would be utilized.  The biofilter is a 4 cell biofilter with each cell being 56 feet by 90 feet.  Before early 2021, the design flow rate was 70,000 cfm and used shredded wood media.  In 2021, the biofilter flow rate was increased to 100,800 cfm and uses an inorganic biofilter media.  The BacTee flooring installed in 2005 has been used with great success with both flow rates and media types.
