Lockwood Water & Sewer District – News & Information
2017-2018 Raw Water Intake Project
The Lockwood Water and Sewer District (LWSD), began construction on our raw water intake project in November of 2017. The project consists of inspecting the existing intake structure, replacing a section of the piping in the Yellowstone River, and the construction of a new pump station. Tank mixers at two of our water storage reservoirs are also being installed in addition to upgrading chlorination equipment within the LWSD water treatment plant. As part of the project a cofferdam was constructed around the entire project area within the river, and the installation of temporary pumps to provide water to the treatment plant. We anticipate construction to be complete in July of 2018. Due to public safety concerns access to the Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks (MTFWP) fishing access site has been limited.
