Absarokee Water & Sewer District, MontanaWater Distribution Main Replacement
The Absarokee water system was experiencing significant water loss, averaging around 70% with some months as high as 85%. The system was comprised of aging and deteriorated steel pipe, much of which was only 4-inches in diameter limiting fire protection capacity.
Great West Engineering prepared a detailed Preliminary Engineering Report (PER) for the Absarokee Water & Sewer District’s water system including an analysis of the overall water system, a water audit, hydrant testing, water modeling, public meetings, and rate analysis. Great West completed design and construction management, including final plans and specifications, design report and construction oversight.
