HARKER HEIGHTS — The 150,000-gallon water tower above the ridge behind the Evergreen Estates subdivision off Farm-to-Market 2410 has a new look.

Freshly painted white, the ball features the city’s red star trademark and the city’s name.

“Weather permitting, the new water system should be operational by the end of the month,” said Mark Hyde, public works director for Harker Heights. “The system will be serving 107 residential lots at The Ridge and The Evergreen subdivisions.”

With future pump station upgrades at the Cedar Knob Pump Station, Hyde said the new system will be capable of serving 750 residential lots on the upper elevations within the City.

The existing water pump station on Comanche Gap Road that serves the Ridge subdivision will pump into the new 150,000-gallon elevated tank.
