3 Million Gallon Water Ground Storage Tank Construction

The City of Heath is constructing a 3 million gallon water ground storage tank at the City’s water pump station near IH-30 in Rockwall. The City currently shares a ground storage tank with the City of Rockwall. The new Heath tank will furnish the City with additional water storage.

The first phase of the construction requires that the City’s pump station be turned off for approximately 20 hours. The shut-down is scheduled to start at 8:00 am, Monday, March 12 and be over by early Tuesday, March 13. With the pump station turned off, the City will depend on the water within Heath’s two water towers to serve the needs of the Heath water customers.

While there is enough water in the water towers to serve our customers for the 20 hour shut-down, the City is requesting that water customers (residential and commercial) not water landscaping or irrigate their yards beginning 12:00 mid-night, Monday, March 12 through 12:00 noon on Tuesday, March 13. This will save water and assure that our water system can function safely and properly during the shut-down.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the referenced project, please contact the City CIP Manager, Chuck Todd, P.E., at the City of Heath: 972-961-4885 or at his email: ctodd@heathtx.com.
