 Overview
 Description
A simple two story concrete block building and some concrete settlement and storage tanks on about 3-4 acres of land near the state highway.

Somebody keeps the property mowed and there is a lock on the gate. Old and new vehicle and boot tracks suggest regular activity. This is most likely still city of Kaufman property.

     History
    This was once the City of Kaufman water treatment plant. It is adjacent to two small reservoirs now called Kaufman City Lakes, where the city once got its water supply.

    Kaufman now gets its water from another community in the county but the old filtration facility still stands. There is moderate vandalism and evidence of a fire at this site.

    I couldn't find any interesting historical information online about this location but even if I did how interesting could it be? I just came to shoot pics.
