WASHINGTON — The Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure (ISI) announced that the Tarrant Regional Water District (TRWD) of North Central Texas earned the Envision™ Sustainable Infrastructure Rating System’s Silver award for their Line J, Section 1 Pipeline project, according to a press release.

The TRWD accepted the award from ISI President and CEO William Bertera during the Board of Directors Meeting on Sept. 23 located at the TRWD Administration in Fort Worth, Texas, stated the release.

The release reported that the award-winning project is a two mile, 108-inch diameter pipeline delivering water from the Kennedale Balancing Reservoir directly to the Arlington Outlet, dedicating a significant amount of water demand from the existing pipelines and allowing TRWD to meet future demands at the Rolling Hills Water Treatment line, as well as locations further west.

The pipeline was designed by Freese and Nichols Inc., a charter member of ISI, noted the release.

“The TRWD pipeline project received the ISI Envision Silver award because of its areas of high achievement in the quality of life for communities in the area that have experienced drought conditions, as well as the stimulation of sustainable growth and development due to increased water demands in one of the fastest growing communities in the U.S.,” said Bertera.
