Currently, the Village Creek Reclamation Facility is the only source of reclaimed water for the City of Fort Worth. All water treated at Village Creek meets the Texas Commission of Environmental Quality Type I standards for reclaimed water. Water treated to this quality is safe to use for irrigation in areas where public contact may occur, such as park or athletic fields. For a description of the treatment process at Village Creek click here.
Through a city ordinance Ordinance No. 19543-02-2011 the City of Fort Worth has established rules for its reclaimed water program. These rules cover a number of issues including application and approval procedures, design and construction requirements, and user responsibilities.
The use and quality of reclaimed water is regulated by the Texas Commision of Environmental Quality (TCEQ) and Title 30, Chapter 210 of the Texas Administrative Code. All reclaimed water applications must adhere to these state requirements.
