Prudent spending leads to additional sewer rehab

Since 2010 Vidorians have seen the results of nearly $30 million Wastewater Improvement Project  being constructed around town. The Orange County Water Control and Improvement District #1 has built a new $13 million wastewater treatment plant replacing three aging and inefficient treatment plants. They’ve laid miles of large sewer mains to gather the effluent more efficiently. And most recently they have done a major rehabilitation on miles of old, leaking wastewater collection lines in the oldest parts of Vidor.  According to OCWC&ID#1 District Manager Norman Blackman, over the course of the massive project the district has been fortunate to find cost savings when they could and the Wastewater Improvement Project has  been consistently under running cost projections.
