Dynamic Cable Construction and Reata Construction Company

Dallas, TX: (Feb-08-07) A lawsuit against Dynamic Cable Construction and Reata Construction Company reached a $2.33 million settlement to compensate the US for flood damage that occurred in September 2000 to two federal buildings in downtown Dallas. Several buildings suffered extensive damage resulting from a catastrophic break of a 30-inch pressurized underground water main that flooded an abandoned rail tunnel connected to the federal buildings. The intense water pressure forced the collapse of the sealed concrete cinder block tunnel entrance causing the basement in the Santa Fe Federal building to be demolished. The accident also caused flooding into the basement and sub-basement of the Earle Cabell Federal Building/US Courthouse. In November 2004, a federal jury in Dallas returned a verdict against Dynamic Cable Construction Company and Reata Construction Company to compensate the US for damages.
