Johnson County, Texas, is located south of Ft. Worth, Texas, and is influenced by the entire Dallas-Ft. Worth Metroplex, which has a population of more than 3 million people. In 1988 the County applied to the Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) to obtain a matching grant for the purpose of developing a plan to effectively correct existing problems and manage future needs in wastewater disposal on a county-wide basis. In early 1989 the grant was approved and work was initiated in May. The results of this planning effort are summarized in this paper.
