- Regional Systems
Wastewater is basically the flow of used water from a community or city. Upper Trinity collects and treats wastewater from homes and businesses through a network of pipes that connect to a water reclamation plant. After the wastewater is delivered to one of Upper Trinity's water reclamation plants, it goes through several treatment processes including: pre-treatment, primary treatment, secondary treatment and disinfection.
Upper Trinity Regional Water Reclamation Systems
Upper Trinity owns and operates three regional water reclamation plants (Lakeview, Riverbend and Peninsula) and an extensive collection system. Currently, the Doe Branch Plant is being designed. Each plant treats wastewater primarily from residential homes and retail businesses, and some industrial facilities.
Lakeview Regional Water Reclamation System
The Lakeview Regional Water Reclamation System consists of one regional water reclamation plant (Lakeview), and a collection system delivering wastewater from each of Upper Trinity's Customers to the Lakeview Plant.
Lakeview Regional Water Reclamation Plant
The Lakeview Plant, located in the City of Lake Dallas in Denton County, is an award-winning plant that provides wastewater treatment for all or a portion of the following nine communities: Town of Bartonville, City of Corinth, Denton County Fresh Water Supply District No. 7 (Lantana), Town of Double Oak, Town of Hickory Creek, City of Highland Village, City of Lake Dallas, Town of Shady Shores and a portion of unincorporated Denton County. The original Lakeview Plant was purchased from the Lake Cities Municipal Utilities Authority in 1996. Today the plant is a 5.0 million-gallons-per-day (MGD) advanced treatment facility.
