Antelope Valley has a population of 1400 people on 320 lots. Crestview
has a population of 600 people on 130 lots. The combination of these
two water supply and distribution systems represents a major change for
the districts involved and is recommended by the Gillette Area Water
Supply Master Plan.
The project includes installation of a 650,000 gallon tank, a control
building, and a meter vault for use as a future connection between the
Antelope Valley District water system and the Crestview water system.
Crestview currently has only one well, and thus has the potential for
service interruption if that well is down for any reason. The
connection to Antelope Valley will provide a back-up source, and may
eventually lead to the two systems being operated as one. This would
reduce overhead expenses for both districts.
The project is presently under construction. It is anticipated that
the project will be completed in the spring of 1996.
RECOMMENDED LEGISLATIVE ACTION:
