Letter of Support: Mary’s Creek Water Reclamation Facility

REC of GFW's Public Affairs Committee addresses issues that affect development. On October 5, 2020, REC of GFW sent the following letter of support regarding the City of Fort Worth Mary’s Creek Water Reclamation Facility (TPDES Permit for Municipal Wastewater) to the Office of the Chief Clerk of TCEQ.

October 5, 2020 Delivered via email   RE: City of Fort Worth Mary’s Creek Water Reclamation Facility – TPDES Permit for Municipal Wastewater; Permit No. WQ0015668001 To The Office of the Chief Clerk: We appreciate the opportunity to write TCEQ in regard to the future Wastewater Treatment/Reclamation facility proposed for west Fort Worth. The Real Estate Council of Greater Fort Worth is a unified group of commercial real estate professionals involved in all aspects of the commercial real estate industry. We represent over 400 members and companies in Fort Worth who push for responsible, efficient and smart development. We consistently work with the City of Fort Worth, Counties and surrounding communities, community stakeholders, developers and landowners and represent their needs in Fort Worth as one of the fastest growing cities in the country. West Fort Worth is already one of the fastest growing areas of our community. There are thousands of acres that are currently being developed and prepared for development in this region. This area lacks the appropriate infrastructure for development and the proposal for a wastewater treatment facility is the basis of future development in the area. Specifically, in regard to the proposed wastewater treatment/reclamation facility, the City is in desperate need for one in west Fort Worth to serve the existing and proposed development of this area. The City has spent the better part of 2 decades preparing, designing, acquiring land and permitting this facility. We feel that the City has gone above and beyond to meet the requirements of the state and community stakeholders. They’ve appropriately addressed the increased needs of the Tarrant Regional Water District and the requirements that the District has placed on the City for this facility. It is our understanding that this facility will be one of the most advanced programs in the country, and The City has proven that the processed water will have little to no effect on the Mary’s Creek water quality. The Real Estate Council feels that this facility is greatly needed to serve our growing community and that the City has been transparent in their desire for this permit. We respectfully request that TCEQ approve this permit to move forward with this vital infrastructure.
