Atmos Update 7.30.18

The below link was provided by Atmos, and provides an update on their accelerated pipe replacement program. At this time, the included map is as large as it can be. We are working with Atmos, and hope they will be able to provide a bigger map, making it easier to find your neighborhood and street.


Our office does not have any information about the timing of their planned projects. You can call 1-888-286-6700, and Atmos will connect you with the Field Construction Supervisor to provide information about your specific area.  

NOTE: If Atmos has scheduled work for your area, you will receive two door-tag notifications: the first will be 7-10 days out, and the second will be 24-48 hours before work begins.

Understanding Pipe Replacement

Spring Newsletter 2018

The Dallas Water Utilities​ is replacing the pump station at Walnut Hill and Hillcrest. Demolition of the old pump station and reservoir is now complete. The overall project is 55% complete and it is expected that the first half of the pump station will be placed into service in early Summer 2018.  Overall construction activities for this project will last through Fall of 2019.  Dallas Water Utilities will revisit the landscape plan and engage the Ad Hoc Committee beginning in January 2018. The Planned Development (PD) requires the building official to approve the inventory all plants in the final landscape plan and Council will be required to approve the contract prior to implementation of the final landscape plan.  For more information on this project please see the Walcrest Pump Station Fact Sheet here and visit www.walcrest.org
