The Water Utilities Department, as it is known today, is an inter-related group of utilities and divisions with similar purpose. It is administered by the General Manager of Utilities under whom the Directors of the Water Utility and Wastewater Utility operate. The department maintains the city’s storm water runoff to reduce pollutants in surface waters, manages the wastewater system and provides water services to the City of Denton. This collection currently contains work orders, reports on different water-related services, drawings and plans of materiel and installations from 1947-2012. Further accretions are expected.
The records of the Water Utilities Department of the City of Denton consist of material accumulated since 1947. The materials include work orders, reports, financial documents, drawings, plans and photographs. The collection has three series: Organizational Files, Drawings and Plans, and Subject Files. The first series, Organizational Files (1947-2012), contains three subseries: Work Orders, which include original work orders and maps for water and sewer lines; Reports, which include reports and studies on various water related projects; and Financial Records, which contain bond budgets for sewer and water. Series II, Drawings and Plans (1971-1975), consists of blueprints and shop drawings for waterlines and pumps. Series III, Subject Files (1988-2001) contains materials related to the Lake Ray Roberts Hydroelectric Plan Project which is restricted For Official Use Only (FOUO), the Ray Roberts water treatment plant and the Denton water tower. Those interested in Water Utilities history and the scope of its projects will find these records to be particularly valuable.
