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.
HKM engineering of Sheridan has been retained for design and construction engineering. Due to the
complexity of the project, the initial cost estimates were insufficient to allow the project to proceed
to construction. The City has requested additional funding of $297,000 to cover these increased
RECOMMENDED LEGISLATIVE ACTION:
It is recommended that additional funding of $297,000 be approved for this project. It is also
recommended the Due Date be extended to 2005.
