Latest Update:

Dallas Water Utilities (DWU) is pleased to announce an accelerated schedule for the Walcrest Pump Station & Reservoir project, in spite of COVID-19 and unrelated contractor delays. Heavy construction at the site is winding down, and the new pump station has been operating successfully since December 2019. As we shift our focus from construction to landscaping, we’d like to thank our neighbors for your patience and input throughout this process. Walcrest is one of the largest redevelopment projects in the history of DWU and serves a critical role in the community. Our expectation is that the nearly completed facility will dependably serve Dallas residents for decades to come.

The updated timeline of major project milestones is as follows:  

  • August 2020 – Bid landscaping
  • Winter 2020-2021 – Construction completed
  • Spring 2021 – Landscaping begins
  • Fall 2021 – Landscaping completed

Please note: Traffic controls are expected to remain in place for the project’s duration. To view Walcrest’s current traffic control plan, click here(8/14/20)

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 Fall 2021, the Walcrest Pump Station & Reservoir will provide greater efficiency, operational flexibility and enhanced water quality for the community for decades to come.
