Juliaetta, Idaho

Source of Supply Capacity Improvements

On February 4, 2018, Juliaetta, Idaho’s water system lost pressure and an estimated 300,000 gallons of water, due to a water main break within the Potlatch River. The break was caused by flood-stage flows that crested at 8,490 cfs the day of the break. In comparison, average flows of the Potlatch River at Juliaetta are 500 cfs.

Great West Engineering prepared multiple grant applications for the City and was able to obtain funding from USDA-RD. Great West completed an Emergency Water Project Engineering Report in May 2018, which allowed the City to obtain emergency funding to update their water treatment plant, raw water infiltration gallery, install new wet well pump station, and SCADA System.
