Wastewater Treatment Plant

The City of Pharr Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) is an Activated Sludge -BNR treatment facility consisting of Screening, Grit Removal, Activated Sludge Treatment, Sedimentation, Filtration, and Disinfection. The WWTP has an 8.0 million gallons per day (MGD) capacity and is the first WWTP in South Texas to have a Biological Nutrient Removal (BNR) system. The BNR is critical in removing phosphorus and nitrates from the influent sewer, both of which can accelerate eutrophication and affect aquatic life. The City of Pharr was recognized through the Arroyo Colorado Watershed Partnership where they received the Texas Environmental Excellence Award from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ). The City of Pharr WWTP is committed to protecting public health and protecting the environment.
