The Legacy West development in Plano is the largest mixed-use project ever in North Texas. The size and speed of this project presented concerns about the District’s ability to meet the wastewater needs within the proposed schedule. The City of Plano and NTMWD worked collaboratively to explore and develop solutions, including:
- Upsizing the pumps at the Indian Creek Lift Station to immediately increase capacity
- Upsizing 3,200 linear feet of a proposed 18-inch force main pipeline with a new 30-inch force main that meets the City’s near term requirements and will become part of the Regional System
- Begin planning for a new Indian Creek Lift Station with a new 24-inch force main that will connect to the Preston Road Lift Station
- Construction by Plano of a new Legacy West Lift Station and 18-inch force main to connect to the NTMWD Preston Road Lift Station
The total cost of this expansion to our regional wastewater system is approximately $27 million for NTMWD, not including what the City of Plano will spend on the Legacy West project. Through communication, collaboration and coordination, both the city and NTMWD were able to come up with a plan for success to serve the new Toyota complex and accommodate wastewater flows for the rest of the Legacy West development area.
