The City of Gillette would like to accelerate construction of the
recommended Phase III improvements, as identified in the Gillette Area
Master Plan. The new storage reservoir will allow the city to meet
maximum daily demands and provide sufficient fire flows. This reservoir
will provide two days of storage if the 43 mile long Madison pipeline
were to be out of service.
Construction of the east end transmission pipeline will complete a major
loop in the city's transmission system and will provide needed fire
protection to this area of town. This improvement was also identified
in the Gillette Area Master Plan.
RECOMMENDED LEGISLATIVE ACTION:
The WWDC recommends that the projects be introduced as a Level III new
development project. The recommended funding is grant funds in the
amount of $2,040,000 which represents 60% of the project costs. The
City of Gillette will provide the remaining 40% funding from other
