Marker Text In response to increased population and extended droughts in the early 1900s, this facility was built to provide an additional water supply for the city of Dallas. Designed and built in 1911 by the city engineering department, the Renaissance Revival structure features corbelled brick and terra cotta details. Although its use has varied and much of its original mechanical equipment is no longer intact, it remains an important water utility structure. RTHL - 1989
