Additional highlights from the March 24 NTMWD Board of Directors Meeting:

  • Authorization of a wholesale water agreement between the City of Mesquite and the City of Crandall to provide wholesale water services to Crandall until such time as they can obtain additional supplies directly from NTMWD. As part of the NTMWD regional service in North Texas, NTMWD Member City Mesquite will extend its water transmission line improvements into Crandall for treated water distribution. The City of Crandall is a customer of NTMWD and is in the progress of designing and constructing a new delivery point to receive additional water through their own infrastructure.
  • Authorization of funding in the amount of $5M and execution of an Interconnect Agreement between Grayson Collin Electric Cooperative (GCEC) and NTMWD for the Sister Grove Regional Water Resource Recovery Facility (RWRRF) project which falls within the service area of GCEC. This establishes the electrical agreement between NTMWD and GCEC including the projected electrical load requirements from the Sister Grove RWRRF which is being constructed to meet growing wastewater demands based on the exponential population growth in that portion of the NTMWD service area.
  • Authorization of inspections and condition assessments of four pipelines to be conducted by Pure Technologies for $2.9M. This will evaluate pipelines totaling more than 42 miles in length, with the largest section being 72 inches in diameter and the oldest section being in use for 51 years. The pipelines are located in the member cities of McKinney, Mesquite, Garland, and Forney. NTWMD’s Pipelines Condition Assessment program is a proactive inspection of pipelines using advanced technologies as an important process to identify potential leaks and breaks to maintain a reliable system of infrastructure.
