Water & Sanitary Sewer Imrpovements

This is the final phase of the project that is responsible for constructing a sewer main - parallel to an existing sewer main - in the Sycamore Creek Sewer Relief Improvement project.


The sewer main that serves the Sycamore Creek drainage basin area does not have adequate  capacity to serve existing customers in the basin, and, serve proposed developments that are located further south. This project provides a sanitary sewer relief interceptor to combat sanitary sewer overflows. An interceptor sewer is a major sewer line that receives flows from trunk sewer lines and smaller sewer mains. This combined flow is then directed to a wastewater treatment facility or another interceptor.


Phase 4A of the parallel interceptor project is east of Riverside Drive, south of Hwy 287, west of Mitchell Boulevard and north of East Berry street. Phase 4B is east of the Fort Worth and Western Railroad, south of Berry Street, west of Old Mansfield Road and north of East Seminary Drive. Both are in Fort Worth Council District 8. Construction may impact customers in the United Communities Association and Glencrest Civic League areas.


This project is part of the Fort Worth Water Department’s sanitary sewer overflow initiative program. The phases include:

  • Phase 1 of the parallel lines started at the I-30 (Trinity Trails System) and extended south to Union Pacific Railroad, along Windham Street (complete)
  • Phase 2 picked up at Windham Street and moved south through the former 9-hole Sycamore Creek Golf Course to south of East Vickery Boulevard (complete)
  • Phase 3 Sycamore Creek South Wastewater Improvements extends from Vickery to Cobb Park Drive (construction; projected end date is October 2023). 
  • Sycamore Creek Sewer Rehabilitation is the rehabilitation of the existing sewer main from I-30 south to the I-35W/I-20 interchange (construction; projected end date is September 2023).
  • Phase 4 and 4B -  Phase 4A is in final design with a projected end date of  December 2026 and Phase 4B is in preliminary design with a projected end date of April 2027. 


The new 66-inch diameter sewer main in Phases 1-3 will run parallel to the existing concrete sewer main which varies in diameter from 48 inches to 54 inches. Both lines will feed into the Village Creek Water Reclamation facility.
