Due to a population boom, Tarrant Regional Water District (TRWD) and Dallas Water Utilities (DWU) needed a 350 mgd raw water transmission pipeline system in order to meet increased demands.
The BGE team designed Section 19-01, 20.8 miles of 84-inch diameter raw water transmission main. The 149-mile pipeline passes from Lake Palestine to Lake Benbrook, with connections to Cedar Creek Reservoir, Richland Chambers Reservoir, and a Dallas delivery point. The project includes six pump stations (three lake pump stations and three booster pump stations). Ellis County and other nearby fast-growing areas needed this additional transport capacity to sustain their growth as well.
The BGE team managed and executed design criteria confirmation (pre-design phase), preliminary design, and preparation of final design documents, as well as bid phase services during construction. The team coordinated with TRWD on the design of the raw water transmission main and provided civil, structural, and mechanical design.
