Raw Water Pipeline and Other Projects

Since construction crews began on the raw water pipeline in August...

  • 474 pieces of 25,000-lb. pipe have been placed
  • 23,700 ft. (12%) of the total pipeline has been laid
  • 65 crew members are now working on the project every day
  • 4 (soon to be 5) crews are currently working at 3 different locations
The pipeline is scheduled for completion in the summer of 2021. 

Along with various other projects, work also continues...
  • Raising the eastern side of the lake's dam to match that of the western portion.
  • At mitigation sites, including preparations for winter tree planting.
  • Building Leonard Water Treatment Plant - Now over one-third complete on the total project.
  • Completing the seventh pour of concrete for FM897 bridge over the future lake - The bridge supporting structure is over halfway complete.
