Duncanville Honors 50th Anniversary of War Memorial on Memorial Day: Monday, May 27

The City of Duncanville is commemorating the 50th anniversary of Memorial Park on Monday, May 27 at 10:00 am. Army Retired Colonel Ronald Munden is the honored guest speaker, who 50 years ago as an Army Cadet, participated in the ceremony and helped unveil the memorial. The first 300 guests will receive a commemorative War Memorial challenge coin marking the event. Memorial Park is located at 101 N. Main Street in Duncanville.

Memorial Day did not become a federal holiday until 1971. Before that it was traditionally recognized on May 30 regardless of the day of the week. Thus, 50 years ago Memorial Day in Duncanville was recognized on Friday, May 30, 1969 with the dedication of the War Memorial and Memorial Park.

Early in 1969, Ed Purcell from the American Legion Post 81, along with noted artist and architect William B. Lowder, developed plans for a memorial marker and eternal flame layout, as well as heading up the fundraising efforts. Starlight Park, which was redesigned, freshly landscaped, and renamed Memorial Park, was the focal point of the dedication ceremonies that morning. Families of the fallen soldiers engraved on the memorial were present and the memorial was unveiled by Midshipman Charles B. Young and Cadet Ronald Munden.

The Duncanville War Memorial is a polished granite monument approximately sixteen feet high featuring a brass bald eagle with a two-foot wing span atop. Twenty-two names were originally inscribed on the monument representing Duncanville’s fallen soldiers from four wars. The eternal flame was also lit on Memorial Day in 1969 and continues to burn bright today.

Please join us in remembering those who have made the ultimate sacrifice to defend the freedoms we enjoy as Americans.

Duncanville Crews Respond to Sanitary Sewer Overflow

The Duncanville Public Works Department is currently undergoing clean-up, remediation and disinfection of a Sanitary Sewer Overflow (SSO) that occurred as a result of weather conditions and heavy rainfall on May 8, 2019. The overflow affected Mauk Branch Creek and is located near:

700 Block of Forest Circle

City Officials will continue to comply with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) requirements for a discharge over their threshold limit of 100,000 gallons. Once the water overflow completely resides, crews will begin taking laboratory samples at various points along the creek to ensure the water and environment are safe. There has been no observation of any fish kills to-date.

Duncanville citizens should not be concerned when using water, as at no time was the City’s water system affected by this sewer spill. The City will continue to collect and test samples in the creek area for any contaminants or distress of marine life. The public should avoid contact with waste material, soil, or water in the area potentially affected by the spill. If the public comes into contact with waste material, soil, or water potentially affected by the spill, they should bathe and wash clothes thoroughly as soon as possible.

For more information, contact the Duncanville Public Works Wastewater Department at 972-780-4900.
