Public meeting on Mary's Creek Water Reclamation Facility set for Oct. 5

Posted Aug. 28, 2020 | Last updated Sept. 16, 2020

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) is holding an online public meeting at 7 p.m. Oct. 5 regarding the proposed permit for the future Mary’s Creek Water Reclamation Facility.

Members of the public who would like to ask questions or provide comments during the meeting may access the meeting via webcast and entering Webinar ID 911-820-667. TCEQ recommends joining the webinar and registering for the public meeting at least 15 minutes before the meeting begins.

The official meeting notice is online. It contains information on how individuals without electronic access can participate and explains the meeting format.

Mary’s Creek Water Reclamation Facility has been planned for almost 20 years, with extensive public outreach related to the plant’s location, design parameters and discharge considerations. The facility’s primary purpose is to clean the wastewater coming from homes and businesses in the rapidly developing areas of west Fort Worth.

The city has committed to a membrane-type treatment process at the facility, capable of producing an extremely high-quality water that can be used by water customers who use reclaimed water for irrigation or processes that do not require potable water. Reclaimed water from the facility is a recommended water supply strategy in the State Water Plan.

The facility will also improve the health of Mary’s Creek by adding flow and oxygen that improves conditions for aquatic life.

Protecting public health and the environment is what the City of Fort Worth water utility does every day by providing drinking water, reclaimed water and wastewater treatment to the region.
