City proceeding with new waste water plant

Greenville – The City of Greenville is proceeding with plans to build a new waste water treatment plant.

In November, 2007 the Greenville City Council approved the sale of $20 million in bonds to pay for an upgraded waste water treatment plant. An application for financial assistance with the project has been made to the Texas Water Development Board in Austin.

A public regarding the project has been scheduled for Tuesday evening, March 10 at City Hall to discuss the potential environmental impacts and alternatives.

The current waste water reclamation center at 100 Division St. just east of Interstate 30 is in need of a complete upgrade in order to comply with the requirements of the City's waste water discharge permit and to meet projected growth.
