The population of north Texas has grown by 650,000 in the last five years, putting increased pressure on the supply of clean water in a region where there are no naturally occurring lakes.

In a first for Aliaxis in North America, we are working on the construction of the Leonard Water Treatment plant, a multi-year project that will help boost supplies of clean drinking water by 70 million gallons in the first phase of the project.

Typically, we supply solutions to upgrade existing infrastructure installations, so this start-from-scratch project was new territory for our team and included building a new man-made reservoir, plus plants to treat both water and wastewater.

Our Guardian™ PVC double containment piping system was chosen for the project because its durability will allow it to withstand years of heavy use and exposure to chemicals without degrading or corroding.

Our customer, Garney Construction, laid nearly 47 miles of pipe with our solution playing a pivotal role.

Three further phases of the project are planned over the next 10 years to further increase supplies, with each phase adding a further 70 million gallons to the water treatment cycle. This will give the Leonard plant the capacity to treat a total of 280 million gallons, enough to meet the needs of a growing population through to 2040.
