Treating Wastewater

Serving a Growing Region

The region we serve is one of the fastest growing in the country. We are actively working to increase our treatment capacity to keep up with demand and make upgrades and adjustments to our infrastructure (pipes, pumps, etc.) to accommodate growth. These projects often take significant amounts of time and planning, so we are committed to starting work on them now. This will ensure we can always meet the needs of our local communities.

Projects Currently Underway

Swisher Road Odor Control Improvements

Upper Trinity Regional Water District (UTRWD) is currently working on upgrades that will reduce odors from the District’s major wastewater pipe along Swisher Road near Lakeview Regional Water Reclamation Plant. We plan to install scrubbing towers and/or carbon filters at various locations along the pipe. Our goal is to provide a better experience for nearby residents and commuters traveling along the roadway.

Design and installation of the towers and canisters are expected to be completed in FY2020. The total estimated project cost is $400,000.

TxDOT Relocation Project

Roadway expansions continue throughout our service area as the population grows. Generally, UTRWD infrastructure is located in private easements out of public rights-of-way. However, the District may need to relocate infrastructure in the near future to accommodate some planned TxDOT road expansions.

The estimated project cost for the design and construction of wastewater pipeline relocations is approximately $4.6 million.

Doe Branch Water Reclamation Plant: Phase 2 Expansion

A growing number of people and businesses in northeastern Denton County and Western Collin County require more wastewater treatment. Based on projections, we must add to the capacity of our Doe Branch Plant to meet the future needs of the City of Celina, Mustang Special Utility District, Town of Prosper and Denton County Fresh Water Supply District No. 10 (Artesia).

We plan to double the plant’s treatment capacity from 2.0 MGD (million gallons per day) to 4.0 MGD. This multi-year project’s total cost is estimated at $28.8 million, including design, construction and other related costs.

Peninsula Water Reclamation Plant Expansion

Growth and development also continue south of U.S. Hwy 380 along FM 720 and Naylor Road, generally in the peninsula arm of Lewisville Lake. The District is planning to expand its Peninsula Water Reclamation Plant from 0.94 million gallons per day (MGD) to 2.0 MGD to treat wastewater from these additional residents and businesses. The expanded plant will serve the Mustang Special Utility District.

Design for this project will begin shortly, and construction is expected to take several years to complete. The project’s total cost is estimated to be approximately $19.3 million.
