More Good News From Your Ector County Utility District

As of August 12, 2022, we have another water line placed in service. This water line is another 12 inch that runs from 16th Street to 26th Street along Tripp Avenue. This water line is part of our pressure plane west of Tripp Avenue. This water line has also stabilized volume and pressure south along Moss Avenue from Swan Road through the neighborhoods along Moss Avenue to the Truck Stops. This water line is allowing ECUD to decommission the Moss Pump Station. ECUD will have more good news in weeks to come.

After six years to the month of exhausting hard work through planning, modeling, studying the growth areas of West Odessa, working toward financing, more planning, more engineering, researching our piping system, more planning, more engineering, as well as working with the City of Odessa, Ector City Road and Bridge, ECISD, various Oil and Gas pipeline companies, and the Great State of Texas, ECUD is finally filling “OUR” water tower on Tripp !!!

This is something the citizens of West Odessa have needed badly for growth and future planning.

After dealing with West Odessa water issues since 1962, I thank God for the guidance and knowledge as well as the opportunities to be associated with water throughout my life and have had the good fortune to be able to work with a few good people over the last six years that could actually make this happen.

Please thank all of the hard working and dedicated ECUD personnel working toward a premier and respected water system in Texas.

Tommy Ervin

President of ECUD since 2016

Serving with pride

The Tripp Water Tower is officially in service!

Boil Water Notice Rescinded

August 17, 2022


On August 15, 2022, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality required the Ector County Utility District public water system, PWS ID# 0680235, to issue a Boil Water Notice to inform customers, individuals, or employees that due to conditions which occurred recently in the public water system, primarily a main line break, the water from this public water system was required to be boiled prior to use for drinking water or human consumption purposes.


The public water system has taken the necessary corrective actions to restore the quality of the water distributed by this public water system used for drinking water or human consumption purposes and has provided TCEQ with laboratory test results that indicate that the water no longer requires boiling prior to use as of August 17, 2022.
