The city of Newcastle received a loan and grant appropriation for construction of a water storage tank, pressure reducing valve stations, and transmission pipelines to improve the municipal water system and its ability to provide service to neighboring entities, e.g. Cambria, West End, Salt Creek, and Blacktail. Regional solutions were explored in the 1999 Level II study, which also provided for the drilling of a Madison formation well for the Salt Creek Water District.

The construction contract for pressure reducing valve stations and booster pump station is underway and those components should be completed by late summer 2003. Design and construction of transmission pipelines and new water storage tank are also anticipated in 2003.

No legislative action is required.
