The water supply system for the Sheridan area is operated by both the Sheridan Area Water System
Joint Powers Board (SAWSJPB) and the city of Sheridan. The diversion is operated by Sheridan
and delivers water to the SAWSJPB water treatment plant and to the city of Sheridan water
treatment plant. During peak demand and during turbid water conditions the diversion and
presedimentation facilities cannot meet the system demand. The study will determine the required
facility expansion, prepare preliminary designs and cost estimates and prepare the project reports.
The WWDC contracted with MSE-HKM to conduct the Level II analysis. The Level II analysis
recommended improvements and expansion of the existing diversion facilities from Big Goose
Creek. The city has requested funding of these improvements.
Project documents to allow funding of this project have been executed and HKM engineering of
Sheridan has been retained for design and construction engineering.
