The City of Lufkin WWTP has three final clarifiers in its treatment train. The third clarifier had baffles installed during its initial construction. The two original clarifiers constructed in the '70s have internal double weir troughs.
The in-place baffles have reduced the pin flock and are particularly effective during increased hydraulic loading.
Card Miles Enterprises, LLC, owner of approximately fifty acres of prime retail/commercial space at South Medford Drive and Tulane Avenue in Lufkin, initiated development with Home Depot as the first commercial project. Since Home Depot, additional development includes:
Commercial Bank of Texas
Marble Slab Creamery
Cinemark Stadium 12
Stolz Engineering provided the planning, site design, utilities, drainage and detention, parking, landscaping, lighting plans, and specifications for all the sites. Planning and design was for a total build-out of 300,00 square feet of retail, restaurant, hotel, office, and entertainment space.
Two residential subdivisions have also been developed on Harmony Hill Drive adjacent to the Garden District Shopping Village. SEA provided the planning, design, and construction phase services for the Courts of Card Forest and two phases of Timber Cove Subdivision
This project was created out of a need for increased recreational opportunities in the City. The original project was based on a Texas Parks and Wildlife Grant and later added a TxDot component with an ISTEA matching grant. SEA provided the design, TP&W grant application, assistance with the ISTEA grant coordination with TxDot to meet their requirements, and construction phase services to coordinate with Grace Dunne Richardson Park Improvements.
Feagin Drive from S. John Redditt Drive to Pershing Avenue in Lufkin was a narrow two-lane asphalt street in disrepair. A major street bond issue included three other streets in 1995 provided the funding for this initial street project. SEA provided the design and construction phase services for the paving and drainage including the permit process through the Southern Pacific Railroad. One railroad crossing was deleted between Feagin Drive and Southwood Drive improving safety.
The City of Lufkin approved bonds and used Texas Development Board Financing to fund a series of 15 water line replacement projects in the distribution system. The purpose of the massive program was to eliminate asbestos water lines in the City's system. SEA provided design, bidding, and construction phase services for this initial project in the series of projects. This project was also the first to use directional boring on a major scale to minimize damage to existing properties along the route.
The flow in the North Bosque River had high nutrient levels and was affecting the water quality in Lake Waco which is the source of the city’s drinking water.
The Wetlands Project was developed to draw a portion of the stream flow through the Wetlands to provide nutrient removal and the benefit of a wildlife habitat.
