The City of Midland partnered with private industry to improve their aging Water Pollution Control Plant (WPCP) and generated a new revenue stream to support long-term operating needs and used the design-build method to achieve optimal results. Private industry needed an affordable supply of water to support their processing needs and the City of Midland needed some improvements completed to comply with new permit requirements. The local industry paid for the necessary improvements at the WPCP to meet the new permit requirements while also agreeing to pay for the use of the effluent to off-set the City’s long-term operating costs.
