Public Meeting Notice

Neighbors of the Pierce-Burch Water Treatment Plant at 1901 Lakewood Drive can talk with representatives from Arlington Water Utilities and Archer Western Construction about the upcoming construction project at the plant during a public meeting from 6 to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 29. The informational question-and-answer session will be held in the community room of the West District Police Station at 2060 W. Green Oaks Blvd.

The City of Arlington has awarded a contract for the construction of the Pierce-Burch WTP Chemical, Clearwell, and Pump Station Improvements Project No. WUTR18001 to Archer Western Construction, LLC. Work on the multi-year project is set to begin in November 2021. It will include the replacement of chemical feed facilities used during the water treatment process, clearwells where water is stored, and high service pumps used to send water to homes and businesses. Electrical improvements are also part of the project. The $112.5 million project is being funded by a combination of Texas Water Development Board Revolving Fund Loan and City of Arlington Water Revenue Bonds.

Arlington Water Utilities operates the John F. Kubala and Pierce-Burch Water Treatment Plants, producing more than 18 billion gallons of treated tap water for the City of Arlington each year. The Pierce-Burch Water Treatment Plant was built in 1972 and has a current water treatment capacity of 75 million gallons per day. In 2014, a Water Treatment Rehabilitation, Improvements and Operations Master Plan commissioned by the City of Arlington recommended several capital improvements at Pierce-Burch.
