|Sycamore Creek Central Wastewater Improvements||
The sewer main currently serving the Sycamore Creek basin area does not have the capacity to serve existing customers in the basin and the proposed developments that are located further south. Fort Worth Water has also managed several sewer overflows in the vicinity. This is Phase 2 of the Sycamore Creek Wastewater Improvement project. Phase 1 started at the I-30 (Trinity Trails System) and extended south to Union Pacific Railroad, along Windham Street. Phase 2 picks up at Windham Street and goes south through the former 9-hole Sycamore Creek Golf Course to south of East Vickery Boulevard. Phase 3 will extend from Vickery to Cobb Park Drive. The new 66-inch diameter sewer main will run parallel to the existing concrete sewer main which varies in diameter from 48 inches to 54 inches. Both lines will feed into the Village Creek Water Reclamation facility.
|Sycamore Creek South Wastewater||
Phase 3 includes design of the 66-inch parallel relief Sycamore Creek Sanitary Sewer Relief Interceptor. The new interceptor will stretch from Vickery Boulevard to Cobb Park Drive. This phase will provide additional capacity and help alleviate wet weather overflows in the Sycamore Creek Drainage Basin.
|Upper & Middle Village Creek Parallel Relief Main - Part 1||
Approximately 11,300 linear feet of wastewater main will be installed and run parallel to an existing main to serve southeast Fort Worth and the wholesale customer cities of Burleson and Crowley. This is to meet current demands and future growth. The proposed main will begin north of Everman-Kennedale Road and east of Anglin Drive and will end south of Shelby Road, generally following the alignment of Village Creek.
|Upper & Middle Village Creek Parallel Relief Main North||
Approximately 28,000 linear feet of wastewater main will be installed to serve southeast Fort Worth and wholesale customers of Burleson and Crowley to meet demands and future growth. This main will begin south of Shelby Road and will end east of Southern Oaks and south of Burleson Retta Road.
|West Fork Trinity River Sewer Relief Line||
A 60-inch relief sanitary sewer main will be constructed parallel to the existing 72-inch West Fork interceptor to address system capacity issues in the West Fork Basin. The Fort Worth Wastewater Master Plan recommends construction of the parallel relief line to connect two deep tunnels in downtown Fort Worth with two West Fork trunk sewers near 1st Street, north of Gateway Park.
