Planned Projects

Will Ruth Pond to Improve Northeast Flood Control

El Paso Water plans to build a large water retention pond in Northeast El Paso between Will Ruth and Threadgill. This project will improve public safety and reduce flooding in the Northeast. 

Heavy rains can quickly create flash floods in this area, endangering residents and drivers. The 93 million-gallon pond will collect stormwater from Dyer Street and the surrounding area and prevent it from flowing into the neighborhoods downstream of the pond. 

With better flood control, hundreds of homes downstream of the Will Ruth Pond will be mapped out of the floodplain, which could save many homeowners from having to pay for flood insurance. This project also could have a positive impact on property values for those homes.

The $15.5 million project is in the planning stage. Construction is expected to begin when property acquisitions are complete.

​Boone Interceptor Replacement Phase II

El Paso Water will replace three wastewater pipelines that were installed in Central El Paso prior to the 1940s as part of the Boone Interceptor Replacement project. Phase I of this project has already completed the replacement of nearly half a mile of 21-inch relief lines and over two miles of 36-inch siphon lines. Phase II will replace nearly two miles of century-old 36-inch wastewater lines creating backups within the system and increasing reliability. This system conveys wastewater from Fort Bliss and Central El Paso to the Haskell R. Street Wastewater Treatment Plant.

Yandell / Wyoming (From Poplar to Raynor) Water Main Replacement

The Yandell/Wyoming project will improve reliability to the system by replacing over 4 thousand feet of aging water lines that have experienced numerous breaks. Water lines range from a 6-inch diameter to 24-inches and are located on Yandell Dr, Rosewood St, and Wyoming Ave. 

Canutillo Bosque Rd Wastewater Lift Station & Force Main 

El Paso Water will construct a new wastewater lift station to include the installation of over a mile of force main lines with room for expansion for future development. This system will service the Westside including Canutillo Middle School, the Village of Vinton as well as future development.
