Village Creek Reclaimed Water Project

About Village Creek Reclaimed Water Project

The Village Creek Reclaimed Water Project was part of an environmental conservation effort by the City of Fort Worth to collect process and redistribute waste water from rain and city wide runoff. This collected water will be redistributed to municipal common areas such as parks and golf courses for use in irrigation. This is a growing trend in water departments across the southwest as populations rise and the concerns over water consumption grow.

The project included a crossing of the West Fork of the Trinity River with 1,046 ft. of 30” ductile Iron water line.

Trans American Underground is one of a very few horizontal directional drilling companies who has the experience with installing ductile iron of this size. The sheer weight of this pipe product and the flex ring connections made this project exceptionally demanding.

Trans American Underground successfully completed the crossing ahead of schedule in 28 days.
