Student Design Competition

The WEAT Student Design Competition gives students the opportunity to design and present improvements to a real-world wastewater treatment plant. Students compete to represent WEAT at the WEFTEC Student Design Competition being held in Chicago this September. The prompt this year focuses on the West Travis County Public Utility Agency’s Bohl’s Wastewater Treatment Plant in Bee Cave, TX.

Students proposed design recommendations to expand the capacity of the Bohl’s WWTP, as well as propose process modifications to meet new flow requirements while continuing to meet TCEQ Type I Reuse permit requirements.

This year a record 10 universities competed: Texas Tech University, University of Houston, Texas A&M University, Lamar University, Southern Methodist University, University of Texas at Austin, Tarleton State University, Texas A&M University-Kingsville, LeTourneau University, and Louisiana State University.
