Inscription.  

Constructed in 1909 as a 15 million gallons per day primary pumping station for the city water supply, this brick industrial building was designed by Dallas architect C. A. Gill. Its location on high ground afforded protection from floods that had damaged earlier stations. The building features ornate masonry detailing in the Italianate style. Last used as a pump station in 1930, the structure is a symbol of Dallas' growth at the turn of the century.
 
Erected 1983 by Texas Historical Commission. (Marker Number 6905.)
