Walcrest Project Update – December 2021 

The last phase of the Walcrest Project is progressing with installation of final landscaping.

Retaining walls – shown in the image above – have been placed and sidewalks have been poured along Walnut Hill Lane and Hillcrest Road. In January 2022, ornamental fencing will be added around the perimeter. In the first quarter of 2022, planting activities will bring seasonal trees, shrubbery, grass and other landscaping elements onto the site.

Weather permitting, we anticipate completion of these initiatives and all aspects of the Walcrest Project to be finalized by this Spring.

To stay update-to-date on final activities of the Walcrest Project, please continue following us on the project’s Facebook and Twitter pages.

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.
