Schneider Electric Project Selected as APWA Texas Chapter Project of the Year

We are thrilled and honored to share that the City of Clute Wastewater Treatment Plant Refurbishment Project has received the APWA Texas Chapter Project of the Year for 2015 award. The award was presented at the 2015 annual Texas Public Works Association (TPWA) event this past week. As part of the city’s commitment to sustainability, the wastewater treatment plant will save 57 percent in annual energy costs thanks to the reduction in wasted water and energy used to regulate water.

In order to properly serve Clute’s growing population and clear the hurdles put up by aging infrastructure, Schneider Electric completely rebuilt the city’s wastewater treatment plant. The new facility now has an aeration system, optimizing air and pressure to meet the city’s constantly-changing water demand at the plant. A new advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) was also installed, reducing the need for valuable manual work hours and maximizes the city’s water revenue. 

Schneider Electric is proud of the positive impacts the new treatment plant is having on the city and we congratulate Clute, TX on its continued commitment to the environment and the community.
