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 nearly complete. The line was finished in the early summer
of 1999 and only minor work remains on the new storage tank.
RECOMMENDED LEGISLATIVE ACTION:
No legislative action required.
