Summit 8.0 MG Ground Storage Tank Improvements

Identified as a maintenance concern in 2014 by TCEQ during their annual tank inspection, Summit Tank was scheduled for renovation to repair, clean deposits, and repaint the interior and exterior of the tank to minimize future maintenance and improve the quality of water within the water distribution system.  The Summit Tank is co-owned by the cities of Duncanville (5/8ths) and Cedar Hill (3/8ths).

This project was completed in 2017 by A&M Construction and Utilities, Inc., at a total cost of $989,425.00.  The City of Duncanville’s share of this cost was $618,390.62.

FY16 Alley Improvements

Drainage improvements and alley reconstruction of the Forest Hills Installment No. 13 alley between Madrid Drive and San Juan Drive (from Madrid Drive to west of South Cockrell Hill Road) have been completed.  This subdivision was built approximately 44 years ago.  The existing alley pavement was replaced with a more durable reinforced concrete pavement to better withstand heavy trash trucks.  Additionally, the alley now has a “V” shape in order to convey runoff from Madrid Drive and the adjacent properties to South Cockrell Hill Road.  The drive approaches at Madrid Drive and North Cockrell Hill Road were removed and replaced in order to make them ADA compliant.  The project was completed at a cost of $276,830.18.
