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. 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.
