We believe that good stewardship of our water resource includes not only conservation, but water reuse as well.
Upper Trinity Regional Water District does this in two ways:
We supply treated effluent (wastewater) from a water reclamation plant for irrigating a local golf course. This is called direct water reuse.
We incorporate already-purchased and previously-treated effluent (wastewater) back into our water treatment process. This is called indirect water reuse.
Direct Water Reuse for Irrigation
Upper Trinity Regional Water District (UTRWD) currently contracts with Denton County Fresh Water Supply District #1A to supply up to two million gallons per day of treated effluent (wastewater) for golf course irrigation. Wastewater just treated at the City of Lewisville’s water reclamation plant is pumped to irrigate the Castle Hills golf course in Carrollton. This water source has already proved invaluable during the drought of 1998.
