Annual Water System Maintenance to begin Monday

From March 2 - March 30, the North Texas Municipal Water District (NTMWD) will perform their annual water system maintenance.

According to a notice from NTMWD, during the temporary change, NTMWD suspends adding ammonia and uses free chlorine to keep water disinfected as it travels through pipes. "This routine, temporary change in water disinfectant is vital to maintain water quality year-round,” said Zeke Campbell, NTMWD Water System Manager. “This common system maintenance practice does not increase the amount of chlorine, and the water remains safe to drink.”

Throughout the month of March, as the change is taking place, the Town will periodically share information as a reminder to our citizens. If you have any questions or concerns about this change, please do not hesitate to reach out to Town staff members.

$675 million will be distributed by the Federal government based on Census data. Higher participation rates will affect funding for schools, transportation, health programs and other community needs.

Sunnyvale could lose $2,132 per year for ten years for every resident not counted.

Rail corridor purchased for future trail system

On Feb. 24, the Town Council voted to purchase a four-mile segment of rail corridor from Luminent Energy for a future Rails to Trails project.

The purchase price was $495,000 and will be paid for with 4B funding.

Two grants have been applied for in the last year to help fund the design and construction of the trail. The trail corridor traverses the eastern portion of the town from the north to the south.
