Welcome to Walcrest!

We are proud to report that the Walcrest Reservoir Project is progressing well. Since 2014, we’ve continued to work hard to revamp our reliable water system and provide safe drinking water to Dallas. As this project advances, we look forward to construction beginning in November 2015, and completion in Fall 2021. Please contact us if you have any questions or comments.

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

With the completion of the new facility in 2021, the Walcrest reservoir and pump station will provide greater efficiency, operational flexibility and enhanced water quality for the community for decades to come.
