Walcrest Project Update – September 2021 

Dallas Water Utilities (DWU) is pleased to announce the completion of the Walcrest Pump Station and Reservoir Project.  The completed pump station has successfully passed all equipment and system testing. The upgraded pump station is now part of the water production system that provides safe drinking water to DWU’s customers.

Currently, the landscaping contractor is in the final phases of landscaping improvements that are scheduled for completion by Spring 2022, weather permitting. The public is advised that during landscaping improvement work, it may be necessary to continue with lane closures on Walnut Hill Lane and/or Hillcrest Road for the safety of motorists and workers. All aspects of this work are being supervised by a DWU inspector. To stay update-to-date on lane closures, please follow us on the project’s social media platforms on Facebook and Twitter. The latest project information can also be found on the project website.

Put into service in 1956, the current Walcrest facility directly serves more than 200,000 area residents. Due to the facility’s age, the original pump station and reservoir have exceeded their useful service life and are currently undergoing a major overhaul.

With the completion of the new facility in Winter 2021-2022, the Walcrest Pump Station & Reservoir will provide greater efficiency, operational flexibility and enhanced water quality for the community for decades to come.
