Not since the contracting with Upper Trinity Authority, was there
a problem with the air quality here in Lake Dallas; However, with
the surge of other surrounding cities waste water to the redesigned
waste water treatment plant adjacent to Lake Dallas Airport, things have changed considerably. No longer, does one smell the fresh air, and breeze from the lake, but the aroma of stinking waste, from other cities that are included in the Upper Trinity River Authority Manifest. Had I bought my property some 35 years ago,
bordering a sewer treatment plant, I would have expected the ODOR, that comes with life here; However, I chose a small lakeside community, with a family atmosphere, and a place that I wanted to raise my family. I guess, "The Times, They are a Changin", cause if I didn't love being here near a lake, with the small town atmosphere, I would move on. Others, have chosen to take advantage,( Yes, I said" Take Advantage", of the roots of this community.
Years, of laying in waterlines/ wastewater lines without the community feeling they were in peril has allowed the UTWA to dump on, or in other words we have been,"SHi_ ON", Lake Dallas, Texas.
Thanks must go out to the present, and the past elected officials, who have so generously changed the way of life, here. Thanks should also go out to members of the UTWA, who known they have been apart of changing the lives of generations to come. I hope it was worth it; You know who you are, and you probably know who I am for knowing what I know, but that doesn't matter, "FIX IT, IT"S BROKEN"
