Client Name: City of Belgrade
Construction Costs: Water Tower: $1.35 million, Water Main Extension: $975,000
Completion Date: 2009
Belgrade has experienced rapid growth resulting in a heavily overloaded water system. The addition of 112 acres of land being annexed in SID 78 on the south side of the interstate and two large subdivisions on the east side of town required the construction of a new 500,000 gallon water tank. This tank is instrumental in providing additional fire flow capacity for the entire town.
TD&H also completed a Water Master plan for the City of Belgrade in 2008. This plan identified the deficiencies in the system. One of the most critical deficiencies is that during a major fire event, even though there is enough fire flow capacity with the water storage tank upgrades, the mains between the south side of town and the north side of town were not big enough to effectively utilize the new water tank. To address this problem TD&H designed 7900 feet of new 8” and 12” main to replace existing 4” and 6”. Construction will be completed in 2010. Not only will the water distribution capabilities of the system be enhanced, but water loss due to leakage should be greatly reduced.
