Wastewater Treatment Plant

There is no doubt that as children we wondered, when we flushed the toilet, where did it go and what happened to it. Some of us may still not fully understand the process. We just know that when we flush, its gone! The truth is there is a great deal involved in wastewater treatment.

Wastewater includes household waste liquids from toilets, baths, showers, and sinks which drain into sewers. Sewage also includes liquid waste from commercial businesses. The wastewater must be treated before it can be released back into the environment. That is the purpose of the plant.

Our wastewater plant is overseen by Supervisor Greg Holleman, who has worked at the wastewater plant for over 30 years. His staff consists of a crew leader/”B” Operator, “C” Operator, lab technician, maintenance technician and laborer. Together they help keep the plant operating smoothly to keep our environment safe and healthy and to maintain compliance with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) requirements.
