PROJECT OVERVIEW

BIG HORN REGIONAL NORTH SUPPLY PIPELINE

 

This project included the design of seven miles of new water transmission line, two pump stations, a pressure reducing valve/flow control station, SCADA, and a 250,000 gallon buried prestressed concrete tank. A Preliminary Engineering Report (PER) and Environmental Report (ER) to meet USDA-RD funding requirements was initially prepared, and numerous meetings were held to coordinate the different water systems that would be tied together with this project. These included Big Horn Regional JPB, Washakie Rural Improvement & Service District, City of Worland, Wyoming Boys School, Town of Kirby and the Lucerne Water and Sewer District. This transmission line will serve the Kirby/Lucerne area near Thermopolis, Wyoming. Permitting through State Lands and Investments, coordination with the Wyoming Boys School, and six BNSF railroad licenses were also required. Easement preparation and negotiations were conducted by EA, and a complete bid package for bidding was prepared to meet USDA-RD, WWDC, and SLIB funding requirements. Construction administration and observation were performed, along with construction staking, and materials testing for this project in Washakie and Hot Springs County
