Resident’s video leads to water employees’ resignations

Published on May 12, 2021

Four Fort Worth Water Department employees who were captured on video placing asphalt on a private driveway have resigned. They were facing disciplinary action, including termination. The employees had been placed on administrative leave as the city moved forward with an investigation into the incident.

“When we received the video from a resident, we immediately initiated an investigation that included interviewing the customer who had the driveway paved as well as the crew involved in the paving,” said Water Director Chris Harder.

The Water Department is sharing its findings with the city’s police department, which will investigate the incident that occurred on the city’s east side late last week.

City staff encourages anyone who sees any questionable activity involving city resources to email the Call Center or call 817-392-1234.
