The existing Elevated Storage Tanks (EST) have inadequate volume and elevation to meet minimum storage requirement as defined by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ). This project is a phased multi-year effort that will provide four new ESTs with 7.5 million gallons of storage. This improved storage capacity, combined with the new heights and two new pump station generators (addressed under a separate CIP project) will place the City’s distribution system in compliance with TCEQ’s Alternative Capacity Requirement (ACR).
This project is the Phase 2 of the ACR Implementation Plan to construct two new storage tanks at the Holly Road Pump Station (District 5) and at Rand Morgan Street (District 1).
Construction started in June 2016 and will be complete in January 2018.
