A major waste water renovation coming out of the city of McAllen.
The new waste water treatment plant is reportedly one of the biggest investments in public utility across South Texas. With a capacity of 10 million gallons per day. The new plant is expected to serve McAllen residents for the next 25 years.
Officials say they felt it necessary to invest in a waste water plant that can withstand the growing population.
McAllen City Manager Roy Rodriguez said, “99% of the community will never see it, but they will all use it. I always talk about the fact that citizens don’t really know where the wastewater goes, nor do they care. They just want it to disappear, and that’s what this takes care of.”
The new plant cost more than $50 million to construct.
