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. This report
served as the basis for the Design funding in the 2001 Session. The design is nearing completion.
The city anticipates having the project ready to bid by May 2002.
RECOMMENDED LEGISLATIVE ACTION:
The WWDC recommends this project be funded for construction in the amount of $684,500. This,
combined with the $75,000 grant for design in 2001 would total $759,500 or 50% of the estimated
project cost. The remaining 50% will be paid by the city from other sources.
