The wastewater plant is currently undergoing renovations to install the most advanced treatment technology available for wastewater treatment. The new technology will replace equipment that has been in service for 20+years. With the new technology, the plant will be able to produce Type 1 effluent, which is the highest quality effluent TCEQ recognizes. Approximately 1 million gallons/day of the effluent is sent to Harbor Lakes ponds for irrigation of their golf course. The plant uses Ultra violet light for disinfection prior to discharge; therefore, no chlorine or other chemicals are needed or discharged to the receiving stream.
Many of the structures at the existing plant will be re-purposed. The capacity of the plant will remain at 2.0 MGD
