WHAT's New In Wastewater:

 – By

Your Wastewater Department’s primary task is to manage and maintain the city’s sewer system. Additionally, this team has also taken on the responsibility of conducting water break cleanups. As we move into summer and the weather improves this team will continue to restore the areas affected to the same condition before repairs were made. This includes bringing the area to grade and seeding as needed.

Work on the RAISE Grant application continues, working towards the July application deadline.  The Box Elder Engineering Division in cooperation with the Pennington County is re-applying for a planning grant thru the RAISE grant program.  Last years application made it to the Secretary of Transportations desk for final review before it fell out.  We feel we have a very viable project that should get strong consideration this year.  If awarded the planning grant it will move the City one step closer to applying for the RAISE construction grant which would allow reconstruction of Radar Hill Road and the 14/16 HWY.

The Radar Hill Road water main replacement project is nearing completion.  The SD DOT Transportation Alternative project has been submitted to the DOT for bid letting.  Construction on this project will be in late summer of early fall on this year with completion early summer of next year.   Annual projects for street maintenance have been awarded for  cracksealing, chip sealing, striping, and pot hole patching.  Several developments are preparing plans for their next phases.  The Well #10 Driling contract has been awarded. Drilling for the new well will begin later this summer.

This month crews in the Water Department have been working to GPS locate our water system component.  This includes curb stops, meter pits, valves, hydrants, and water mains. Notice the blue line on the sidewalk? These are to help your maintenance crews find water valves in case of water emergencies. By GPS locating and creating digital maps, your Public Works team is able to better plan and schedule maintenance projects to improve the system.
