Freese and Nichols evaluated the City's water needs and prepared a plan to increase water supply from Fort Worth. Based on FNI's extensive route analysis, the City chose Shaffstall Road for its pump station and ground storage tank (GST). Freese and Nichols designed the City’s 2-MG GST and 10-MGD Shaffstall Pump Station, which included pumping capabilities for the Upper and Lower Pressure Planes and an emergency generator capable of operating two of the five pumps in case of power outage. The generator was fitted with sound dampening features to eliminate nuisance noise and soft start pump drives to allow for the use of low voltage equipment.
The project also included the following pump station improvements: landscaping enhancements to provide a softening effect for future residential development in the area, architecture to match the City’s theme for new municipal buildings and to blend in with future residential development, and coordination with the shutdown and replacement of the Brushy Mound Pump Station.
