The expansion of the Master Plan for development of the Dallas, Tex., water utilities to the year 2000, for the distribution system, and 2050, for supply, is based on a thorough analysis of past performance data on the system and accurate basic field data. Presented are the details of expansion, based on a very complete computer analysis of all phases of operation from the clearwells and reservoirs to the customers, including best points of entry of new supplies to the distribution system as well as the required size of new major trunk mains, pump stations, and reservoirs. Extensive analysis was made of methods of operation, economics, and division of costs for supplying the City of Dallas and the suburban communities. The project was unique because of the size of the problem and quantities of water involved.
