Water & Wastewater

Water Treatment
The City of Denison owns and operates its own treatment and distribution system and is the sole provider of water to its residents. The city owns all of the water rights to city-owned Lake Randell, and a substantial amount of water-rights storage in Lake Texoma. The far-reaching vision of leadership has provided Denison with a sound and reliable potential for development for decades to come.

The Randell Water Treatment Plant is located near Lake Randell and is rated to treat up to 13 million gallons of water per day. On a yearly basis, the plant treats 4.5 million gallons per day. The Randell Plant is a conventional sedimentation-filtration treatment system, which has received several million dollars worth of upgrades in the last couple of years.
