Officials from the City of Grand Prairie celebrated the grand opening of the $8 million Heritage Pump Station near the intersection of Highway 287 and State Highway 360, scheduled to begin operating in early 2024.
The newly completed pump station will meet water needs in Grand Prairie’s largest residential growth area along Highway 287. It will initially serve 623 households and eventually provide water for approximately 26,665 homes. Capable of providing 6 million gallons of water per day (MGD), the pump station is expandable to 12 MGD. The ground storage tank holds water equivalent to three Olympic-sized swimming pools.
“The City of Grand Prairie appreciates our partnership with the City of Mansfield, which supplies the water for this project,” said Mayor Ron Jensen. “This pump station is crucial for the future growth guaranteed to come to this area in the next few years. The 2 million gallons of water it will produce daily is equivalent to 96 million cups of water daily!”
The City of Grand Prairie hired Freese & Nichols, Inc. for engineering services on the pump station and associated water line, while Felix Construction served as the General Contractor.
