 39. PROJECT:Gillette Central Zone Isolation
LEVEL:New Application
SPONSOR:City of Gillette
LOCATION:Campbell County

Pursuant to the 1999 City of Gillette water system evaluation, this project calls for construction of four new transmission lines and isolation valves to increase static pressure in an area of town known as Twin Spruce. Modeling of this area was done to investigate areas of low pressure and low available fire flows. To create higher pressures, the area must be isolated and either included in one of the other existing higher pressure zones in the city or be established as a new pressure zone.

An evaluation of this project was prepared for the city by Stetson Engineering, Inc., which satisfactorily would serve as the WWDC Level II study. The design is estimated to cost $150,000.

The WWDC recommends this project be funded for design only for $75,000. The financing plan is a grant of 50%, $75,000, and the sponsor is responsible for the remaining 50% funding from other sources.
