The current Water Master Plan has identified water main improvements which will expand the Upper Pressure Plane into the area bounded by Cooper Street, Fielder Road, Arkansas Lane, and Sanford Street. These improvements will increase the water pressure in this area which is currently experiencing lower than average daily operating pressures.Project status: Construction on Phase One of the project started in February 2018. It includes the construction of about 8,500 feet of 8-inch, 12-inch, and 16-inch water main and replacement of about 3,300 feet of 8-inch sanitary sewer main. Once the water and sanitary sewer improvements are complete, approximately 21,600 square yards of asphalt pavement will be reconstructed by street reclamation along Davis Street from Park Row Drive to UTA Boulevard along with sidewalk improvements.A public meeting about the project was held on Jan. 31, 2018.

Phase 2 improvements includes approximately 14,000 feet of 16-inch water main along Park Row Drive from Davis Street to Fielder Road, along Fielder Road from Park Row Drive to Arkansans Lane, along Arkansas Lane from Fielder Road to Monte Carlo Drive, and along Monte Carlo Drive and Venture Drive from Arkansas Lane to Bowen Road. The Arlington City Council approved a contract with Westra Consulting, LLC for this design work. Once the water improvement is completed, concrete panel replacement or street reclamation will be performed.Related closures and outages: Some road closures and short-term water outages will be necessary. Affected residents will be notified through face-to-face interactions, social media, and email communication.Timeline: Since the proposed improvements have been divided in two phases, the pressure increase will not occur until both phases are complete, which is anticipated for by mid-2019.Questions about this project?
