Water Supply

Irving's Drinking Water Source

Most of the City of Irving’s water is pumped from Lake Chapman to Lewisville Lake and then treated for Irving by the City of Dallas. Irving owns water rights to water in Lake Chapman, which was previously known as Cooper Reservoir. Some of the City of Irving’s water is purchased directly from the City of Dallas to supplement the Lake Chapman water. View the Irving Water Supply Map (PDF) for more details.

  • Lake Ray Hubbard
