Improvements at NTMWD’s Wilson Creek Regional Wastewater Treatment Plants Receive State and National Accolades

One of NTMWD’s largest wastewater treatment plants, Wilson Creek Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant (RWWTP), received state and national recognition for projects related to complex electrical improvements. The recognition is shared with Mbroh Engineering, the design firm working with NTMWD on the plant enhancements which include a new power yard with a main medium voltage paralleling switchgear that parallels multiple medium voltage generators with two electrical utility power services.

In March, the project won a state Texas Gold award from the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) in the Energy category. Hosted by the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC)-Texas, the Awards Gala took place at the chapter’s 56th Annual Meeting and celebrated the strengths, creativity and achievements of the engineering industry in Texas.

It also won national recognition from the American Council of Engineering Companies 2022 Engineering Excellence Awards competition. This prestigious national honor is often referred to as “the Academy Awards of the engineering industry.” This award will be presented on May 24, 2022 in Washington DC.

The project is one of NTMWD’s largest electrical generation systems that parallels with a power company and provides plant-wide power reliability. It provides a fully redundant plant-wide power source and highly innovative energy solutions to serve over a 780,000 customers across 11 North Texas cities: Allen, Anna, Fairview, Frisco, Lucas, McKinney, Parker, Plano, Princeton, Prosper and Richardson.
