Water System Improvements Project | Updated October 13, 2018
The Town plans to up-size their 4-inch mains to bring the existing system into compliance with the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) 6-inch minimum standard. The installation will also loop the dead-end mains and install a backflow prevention device at the fill station.
Eliminating the dead-end mains results in improved water quality and also provides alternative paths for the water to reach the same destination. This allows flexibility for the operator to isolate specific areas for repairs while limiting service interruptions. Other benefits include increased fire flow. Also included in the project is a new water fill station to be located at the Fire Hall.
Facilities will be designed and constructed in accordance with sound engineering practices and must meet the requirements of Federal, State, and local agencies. The proposed facility design must be based on the Preliminary Engineering Report (PER) as concurred in by the Agency.
KLJ Engineering of Helena was hired to design and oversee the project.
C&C Excavating of Havre was awarded the contracting bid.
Projected completion date – December 10, 2018
TOTAL PROJECT COST – $1,764,000
