What We're Doing

This project includes construction of a new water distribution booster pump station (19th BPS) on the north west corner of 19th Avenue & Range Road, and 2.5 miles of 12-inch water transmission line to connect the pump station to 44th Water Tower.

Anticipated Milestones

  • Anticipated Date (Design): Design completed June 2017
  • Anticipated Date (Construction): Construction began September 2017
  • Anticipated Date (Completion): Construction completed April 2019

Benefits of the Project

The new 19th BPS, water transmission line and 44th Water Tower will establish a new municipal and rural water distribution zone for the area (see map below). This new zone eliminates small temporary pump stations currently used to maintain City Standard water pressure of 40psi at Boulder Creek, Hidden Oaks, and Kenslow Farms developments. The new system also assimilates the existing Southwest Zone developments of Nottingham, Woodlake I and Woodlake II. This new zone will help to relieve the overburdened Southwest Distribution Zone during high demand periods, as well as, lifts the Twin Towers Moratorium for future development growth.
