The Water Utilities and Capital Improvement Program Departments in Irving are taking proactive steps to replace aging water and wastewater infrastructure. This initiative aims to reduce service disruptions and increase capacity to accommodate the city’s growth.

In 2020, Irving completed its latest update to the Water Master Plan. The ongoing updates to the Wastewater Master Plan are expected to be finalized in 2025. These plans produce a prioritized Capital Improvement Plan, identifying necessary system improvements driven by growth and redevelopment.

The city is also focusing on reinvestment in the water and wastewater systems by replacing aging infrastructure, such as older cast iron and fiber cement water pipes, that have reached the end of their useful life. Risk assessments are used in the project prioritization process to ensure funds target the most critical lines.

In Fiscal Year 2024-25, Irving plans to proceed with $25.5 million in projects currently under design.
