The City of Billings 2012 Water Main Rehabilitation Project consisted of installing approximately 15,000 lineal feet of new water main to replace aging pipelines throughout the City of Billings downtown area. Traffic control on busy arterial streets and coordination with the City of Billings, the Montana Department of Transportation was crucial to the success of the project. The project replaced existing lead services and water mains from the early 1900's. The project also included replacement of incidental items such as sidewalks, curb and gutter, and street reconstruction. Sanderson Stewart provided survey, design, construction administration and construction survey.
Sanderson Stewart provided piping design and construction management for the installation of a 50,000-gallon steel elevated water storage tank. Design features also included an internal recirculation system.The facility was constructed following a water system evaluation and recommended primarily to increase on-site fire fighting storage capacity and serve as a redundant storage facility for the campus. Sanderson Stewart also provided design and construction management for the installation of a second lagoon cell to accommodate growth at YBGR.
To prepare the City of Billings for upcoming regulation changes that will affect how stormwater is managed, Sanderson Stewart recently completed the W.O. 12-17 Integrated Water Plan - Stormwater Study. One of the major components of the study was a structure inventory of approximately 25 ditches, drains, and stormwater receiving waters across Billings and a portion of Yellowstone County. The study identified existing ditches and drains that could be acquired and used as stormwater conduits and identified potential stormwater storage areas that could be used for future stormwater treatment and reuse, and was part of a larger City of Billings Integrated Water Plan project consisting of several other studies
