The Town of Northlake will begin construction on a new 1.25-million-gallon elevated water storage tank in February 2020 to be located one-third a mile north of Old Justin Road between Cleveland-Gibbs Road and Flanagan Farm Drive.
The new water tower allows the Town to provide residents with improved levels of water service with fewer outages. The tower initiates the second phase of an eventual two-source system outlined by the Town’s master plan to accommodate growth within the Town’s service area, which includes Northlake town limits and ETJ areas.
Increased levels of water storage also allow the town’s fire service, provided by the Denton County Emergency Services District, to better serve and protect Northlake residents. The new tower provides emergency storage for fire protection and power outages, allowing Denton County ESD to maintain consistent water pressure independent of supplier disruptions in emergency situations.
Landmark Structures, the contractor selected by the Town to construct the tower, plans to begin construction in early to mid-February. Weather permitting, Landmark Structures plans to complete construction in Summer of 2021.
There will be occasional construction traffic accessing the site from Old Justin Road but no road closures or detours are anticipated.
