36-inch Water Transmission Main to be Drained Over 3-Day Period

On February 1st, 5th, and 6th, the Board of Public Utilities will be draining a large water transmission main from Crystal Reservoir to the R.L. Sherard Water Treatment Plant. 

This 36-inch pipeline is being drained in preparations for electrical installation work on the Hydroelectric Generation Facility. Residents will not notice a difference in their drinking water as draining will occur prior to treating, disinfecting, and distributing water to Cheyenne. 

Residents in the area between Crystal Reservoir and the R.L. Sherard Water Treatment Plant on Happy Jack Road may notice geyser like water flows from the blow off valves throughout the day on Thursday in addition to Monday and Tuesday.
