Solid Waste Disposal

The City of Denison and Waste Management of Texas provide a solid waste disposal system for normal, non-hazardous wads. Various private contractors handle hazardous waste disposal and recycling.

Quality Requirements for Discharge

BOD & TSS

Industries discharging more than 50 pounds per day of BOD and TSS must obtain a discharge permit that allows a rate of 500 MG/L multiplied by the flow from their plant.

Oil & Grease - 150 MG/L

* Permitted industry surcharges apply at waste concentrations above 250 MG/L.

Electric Power

When it comes to electricity supply, Texas has an advantage no other state can offer. Texas boasts its own stand alone electric power grid to ensure a reliable, secure and uninterrupted supply of electricity. In 1993, the Center for Advancement of Energy Markets ranked Texas the "number one" deregulated market in the United States.

The new era of deregulation in Texas offers new opportunities for competitive rates and services. The current industrial rate is 6.9 cents per kilowatt hour. Below is the link to information for residential and non-residential electrical power providers.
