The City of Murphy has recently become aware of a proposal to construct a Wastewater Treatment Facility in close proximity to the city’s northern boundary with the city of Parker. The proposed facility will be located within the city of Parker Extra Territorial Jurisdiction (ETJ). Prior to construction of the proposed facility, the applicants must secure permission to discharge domestic wastewater. In this case, the wastewater will be discharged into Maxwell Creek. The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) is the State organization that will authorize a discharge of wastewater from the proposed facility into Maxwell Creek. The city of Murphy has formally adopted a Resolution in opposition to the Wastewater Treatment Facility.
