The water treatment plant (WTP) is a 10 million gallons per day (MGD) plant.The WTP, which was expanded in 1996, is in need of another expansion due to the growing population. The engineer designs are in the final stages and construction should be completed by early 2011. The expansion will add an additional 5 to 7 million gallons to the WTP and will cost approximately $14,000,000. Currently the maximum average demand is approximately 8.5 MGD and increases to 9.5 MGD in the summer months. The expansion is greatly needed to stay in compliance with Texas Commision on Environmental Quality regulations, to be able to continue economy growth in the city, and to be able to provide quality service to the citizens of Pharr.
