Leavitt Reservoir Expansion Project
LOCATION: Shell, WY
OWNER: Wyoming Water Development
ENGINEER: RJH Consultants, Inc.
Big Sky Civil will be performing this work in conjunction with Montana Civil Contractors out of Belgrade as Big Sky Civil Montana Civil JV. We look forward to working with our JV partner on another heavy civil project.
The Leavitt Reservoir Expansion Project includes construction of a new zoned earthen embankment, diversion structure, outlet works tower, and concrete-encased pipe.
The reservoir will also include a minimum pool for fisheries and recreation. The new embankment will be approximately 1,800 ft. long with a maximum height near 100 feet.
The new reservoir footprint will have an area of approximately 200 acres. The reservoir will be supplied by a pipeline, approximately 1.5 miles long, which will convey water diverted from Beaver Creek to the reservoir inlet.
