Document Description
The proposed project includes improvements to the Sky View County Water District water distribution system that are needed to replace aging infrastructure, improve fire flows and fire protection, reduce ongoing maintenance costs, improve redundancy in the system, and ensure a safe and reliable potable water supply for customers in the District’s water service area. Proposed improvements include replacement of old and undersized waterlines, installation of water meters, meter boxes, and service lines, and replacement/installation of fire hydrants. The existing Ponderosa Way water tanks would be demolished and replaced by a single tank, and the booster pump station would be replaced. Improvements at the well site include replacing the existing well house and associated equipment, and completing improvements to the well. A new transformer would be installed at the well site, an access stairway would be constructed across Paynes Creek, and the existing overhead electric line between the well site and the Ponderosa Way water tank site would be replaced with underground electric conduit. The water system would be extended to serve residents on Canyon View Loop, north of Highway 36. This would include installing new waterlines, water services, meters, and fire hydrants. A new water tank would be installed near the upper (eastern) intersection of Canyon View Loop and Highway 36.
