Covia Opens New Plants with Water Recycling Systems

In 2018, Covia commissioned plants in a semi-arid region with growing development-related demand on regional aquifers. Our new facilities in Kermit and Crane, TX, employ water management systems, which allow us to repeatedly capture, clean, and recycle wastewater. Approximately 98 percent of the water is recycled at these locations. This design allows these sites to consume a fraction of fresh water compared to the total water processed through the system each day. While there is some recycling of water at most locations, we operate six high efficiency water recycling systems like the one at Kermit and Crane, Texas.
