The City of Temple is served by two wastewater treatment facilities. Wastewater is comprised of used water and wastes disposed of through plumbing fixtures from homes, industries and commercial establishments. Approximately 0.1% of wastewater received by a treatment facility is waste that needs to be treated to keep the community and environment safe.
Temple-Belton Wastewater Treatment Plant
The City of Temple, jointly with the City of Belton, provides funding for the operation of the Temple-Belton Wastewater Treatment Plant. This is accomplished through a contract with Brazos River Authority.
The Temple-Belton Wastewater Treatment facility makes Tri-Gro products available to the general public for purchase. The most popular product is a compost humus produced with wood products and wastewater bio-solids. Since Tri-Gro is processed at temperatures above 133 degrees, it is free of weed seeds, plant diseases and pathogens. Click here for more information.
