The purpose of the Project is to provide access to and use of first-time wastewater services in unserved areas and eliminate exposure to untreated or inadequately treated wastewater discharges by connecting the homes to new wastewater collection and treatment infrastructure, contributing to the reduction of water pollution and the risk of waterborne diseases
The proposed project includes the construction of wastewater collection and treatment system infrastructure for the residents of six colonias1 located northwest of the City of Donna in Hidalgo County, Texas and the installation of yard-line connections from the home to the Wastewater Collection System (WWCS) as well as the decommissioning of existing on-site wastewater disposal systems for up to 400 homes (the “Project”).
The environmental and human health outcomes anticipated for the Project include:
Provide access to wastewater collection and treatment services for 400 homes, of which up to 318 new residential connections will be installed through TWDB-EDAP2 funding, and 82 will be installed through NADB-BEIF funding.
Eliminate untreated or inadequately treated wastewater discharges of approximately 0.17 million gallons per day (mgd).
