LVWD owns and operates the water distribution and wastewater collection systems in the district, which includes the city of Socorro. The District has inter-local agreements with El Paso Water (EPW) to purchase bulk drinking water, and the wastewater collected by LVWD is conveyed to the Roberto Bustamante Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) owned and operated by EPW. In December 2020, LVWD had approximately 90% coverage for drinking water service and 75% coverage for wastewater collection services.
The project consists of installing yard-line connections to the new sewer system for up to 278 homes, as well as the decommissioning of all on-site septic systems.
The purpose of the Project is to provide access to 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 infrastructure, contributing to the reduction of water pollution and the risk of waterborne diseases.
