Meadows Place hosts Water-Reuse program and tour
Meadows Place welcomed the Southeast Branch of the Texas Public Works Association (TWPA) to their city and rolled out the red carpet for this group of men and women who keep our cities operating. After the Board Meeting, President Andy Phillips and Jason Kirby of WC&ID #2, welcomed Mayor Charles Jessup and Meadows Place Director of Public Works, Dan McGraw to step up and present their program “No Community is Too Small to Realize Great Benefits from Water Reuse”. There to hear the program and take the tour were over 50 TPWA members from several Ft. Bend cities, as well as representatives from Houston, Pearland, the Woodlands, several engineering firms and manufacturers like Alpha Laval-Ashbrook Simon Hartley.
Meadows Place has been recognized for the effectiveness of their water re-use project and has already presented its program for small cities at the 28th National Water ReUse Conference in Denver, the Association of Water Board Directors in Dallas and will be presenting at the TWPA State Conference in Galveston this summer.
“There are a lot more small cities in Texas than big ones” said Mayor Charles Jessup. “That, coupled with the success of our project is why there is so much interest in what Meadows Place has accomplished.” Public Works Director, Dan McGraw added “We have had well over a hundred people from cities and water districts around Texas, the U.S., Canada, Mexico and even Sweden and Norway come tour our facilities. It is a great opportunity to show them what we have done, how we did it and share ideas about water re-use, which as we all know, will be more and more important to meet the water needs of the future.”
