Wastewater and Treatment

The Wastewater Utility manages the daily operations of Denton’s wastewater system. The Division supports the collection system to 125,000 sanitary sewer customers and responsibilities include daily operation and maintenance of the wastewater collection system, sewer manholes, sanitary sewer lift stations, and compliance with the Clean Water Act.

The Pecan Creek Water Reclamation Plant treats about 15 million gallons per day. Our plant meets some of the strictest discharge standards to protect the quality of Pecan Creek, and meets all Environmental Protection Agency and Texas Commission on Environmental Quality permits and regulations. The City has an Industrial Pretreatment Program developed according to EPA and TCEQ regulations. This program assists commercial and industrial users in complying with EPA wastewater discharge regulations. For more information, call David Hunter at (940) 349-7123.
