San Angelo is the county seat of Tom Green County, Texas. It is located in the Concho Valley, a region of West Texas between the Permian Basin to the northwest, the Chihuahuan Desert to the southwest, the Osage Plains to the northeast and Central Texas to the southeast. The city is comprised of approximately 100,000 citizens, including students at Angelo State University and military members at Goodfellow Air Force Base. The city’s Water Utilities Department is charged with providing, operating and maintaining drinking water and wastewater services to all residents.
In 2017 and 2018, the city, with the assistance of consulting engineering firm Enprotec/Hibbs & Todd, Inc. (EHT), designed and constructed the Sulphur Draw Wastewater Improvements Project, which included gravity collection sewer system improvements along with a new force main and lift station. The alignment of the new force main, originally designed to be a 10-inch high density polyethylene (HDPE) pipe, was to be installed through the Santa Fe Park Golf Course, across the Concho River and through an eclectic and historical residential neighborhood. To minimize risk of future maintenance issues and to reduce construction costs, the city and EHT opted to utilize a fully fused system for the new force main.
