Fort Worth to Upgrade Tanglewood's Edwards Ranch Pump Station, Community Meeting ScheduledSource: Google Street View

Residents of Fort Worth's Tanglewood neighborhood are bracing for the din of construction as the city gears up to overhaul the Edwards Ranch Pump Station. The aging electrical infrastructure, battered switchgear, and motors are due for a replacement, along with the installation of backup generators to ensure that the bitter lessons learned from the February 2021 deep freeze don't repeat themselves, according to the City of Fort Worth.

According to the City of Fort Worth Water Department, the station situated north of Overton Park Drive W and Bellaire Drive South will also see its 36-inch concrete water line beefed up to a 42-inch. Aimed at fortifying the water supply against future crises, the project is a critical step to keep water flowing when the elements turn against the community.

With Tanglewood Elementary School set as the venue, the city has organized a community meeting for Monday, April 25 at 6 p.m. to discuss the details of the construction that could disrupt the peace of resident life. Those interested in attending can find the school nestled at 3060 Overton Park Drive West, ready to field questions and outline the scope of the improvements.

The capital improvement effort falls under Fort Worth Council District 3's jurisdiction, where the proximity to the pump station could spell temporary inconveniences for locals. According to a city bulletin, David Townsend, the trudging project manager through the cogs of bureaucracy, bears the weight of delivering the upgrade without major hitches. Townsend can be reached for queries at the department's hotline, 817-392-8430, or through his city email, [email protected].
