The work in Reservoir Road is being completed as part of the City’s Water Source and Treatment Capacity Expansion Project, which will expand the plant’s total capacity from 4 million gallons per day to 6 million gallons per day. This work is required by the Montana Department of Environmental Quality to meet the City’s growing demand during the peak summer months.
