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 2019, the Walcrest reservoir and pump station will provide greater efficiency, operational flexibility and enhanced water quality for the community for decades to come.

Traffic Control Plan

Traffic around the construction site will be affected and controls, including electronic signage, are in place. Traffic controls began December 2015. You can find specifics on traffic routing around the construction site here:
