 35. PROJECT:Gillette Storage & East End Transmission Improvements
SPONSOR:City of Gillette
LOCATION:Campbell County
PROGRAM:New Development
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
Level III 38 1998 I $2,040,000* 2002
*60% grant

The City of Gillette is accelerating 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 was 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.

This project is well underway with many needed rights of way either complete or in negotiation. Design of the storage tank is approximately 50% complete. Bids will open in spring of 1999. The construction of the project should finish out in the fall of 2000.

No legislative action required.
