The City of Fort Worth proposes to construct wastewater treatment facilities (WWTF) to collect and adequately treat 137 million gallons per day of wastewater through the design year 2005. The City proposes to expand the existing Village Creek WWTF and dispose of sludge by landfilling in the Trinity River floodplain. A number of alternatives were evaluated including sludge disposal by surface landspreading, wastewater treatment by slow rate irrigation - an alternative technology - and no action. EPA, through the Texas Department of Water Resources, is considering approval and funding of improvements to and expansion of the system as well as providing no funding.
