IPL Project​

​Tarrant Regional Water District (TRWD) and the City of Dallas Water Utilities (DWU) have partnered to finance, plan, design, construct and operate the IPL Project. The IPL Project is an integrated water delivery transmission system connecting Lake Palestine to Lake Benbrook with connections to Cedar Creek and Richland-Chambers Reservoirs integrating TRWD's existing pipelines and creating flexibility in delivery as well as quick response to fluctuating customer water demands. The Integrated Pipeline Project (IPL) consist of 150 miles of pipeline, three new lake pump stations, and three new booster pump stations delivering a required capacity of 350 million gallons per day (MGD) of raw water to North Central Texas.

The $2.3 billion project will bring much anticipated water capacity to the region, which is expected to grow substantially over the next five decades. Each project is expected to be approximately $100 million, with a significant amount of that going toward the purchase of the piping materials.

The first of the projects is expected to be released in early 2014. The first segment, 15–1 will be in Navarro County and consist of approximately 15 miles of 108–inch diameter pipe. The second and subsequent projects will be rolled out regularly over the next several years as the project gradually works its way from Navarro County back toward southern Tarrant County. Additional projects will ultimately connect the Navarro County segments to Lake Palestine.
