Pump Station Operations

The City of Allen operates two pump stations: the Stacy Road Pump Station and the Custer Road Pump Station. Together they can pump up to 66 million gallons of water per day, meeting the City's highest level of demand. The City uses a Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system to monitor water levels in storage facilities. The system operates pumps and valves to control supply and ensure proper water pressure.

Water Storage

The City of Allen has five ground storage tanks with a combined storage capacity of 24 million gallons and five elevated water towers with a combined capacity of 9 million gallons. This capacity will meet the needs of the City, even when completely built out. Ground storage facilities are located at the Stacy Road and Custer Road pump stations. The presence of two facilities allows more flexibility with maintenance. It also provides additional protection from an interruption in water supply. The City of Allen also owns five elevated water towers with the combined capacity to hold nine million gallons of water. Elevated tanks help regulate water pressure and serve as an additional water supply when demand is high.
