STEVENSVILLE, MONT.—The Town of Stevensville and HDR Engineering is pleased to
announce that they will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Town’s newly
constructed headworks and biological nutrient removal facility at the Stevensville
Wastewater Treatment Plant onsite at 1:00PM on July 21st, 2016.

“We’re happy to introduce our latest piece of infrastructure to the public and those who helped bring this project to fruition,” said Community Relations Representative Brandon Dewey.  “The ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new headworks facilities brings us into a new era of wastewater treatment for the Town of Stevensville”

Lieutenant Governor Mike Cooney, is scheduled to be on hand to offer a few remarks regarding the new headworks facilities and to assist in the ribbon-cutting.

“We’re delighted Mr. Cooney has agreed to join our celebration.  Our need of constructing this facility was made possible in part by him and the folks at Rural Development,” said Dewey.

The new headworks facility is where all of the wastewater enters the plant. Flow measurement takes place here as well as grit removal, such as sand and gravel. The state-of-the art design of the new facility helps with reliability and maintenance throughout the rest of the system as well as odor control. The new biological nutrient removal facility reduces ammonia, nitrogen, and phosphorus in the plant’s discharge reducing impacts to the Bitterroot River

Town of Stevensville Mayor Jim Crews is scheduled to give an address at the ribbon cutting and other elected officials from Ravalli County and the State of Montana are expected to attend as well. The public is invited to enjoy refreshments and join a tour of the treatment plant.

Stevensville Project Will Require Temporary Path Closures

Butte, MT. – June 17, 2016 – Work is under way on a transmission line in Stevensville that will lead to temporary closures to the memorial bicycle-pedestrian path that borders the Stevensville Cut-Off Road as it enters the community.

 Crews are working on foundations for the power poles and will continue to work along the route as the line moves towards completion. There will be intermittent closures of the path for safety reasons as the work progresses. Work on the line is expected to be complete in the fall.
“We appreciate your understanding and cooperation as we work to complete this needed project,” said Steve Clawson, community relations manager for NorthWestern Energy. “Our intent is keep all or portions of the path open for public use whenever possible.”

The new segment of transmission line will connect to a new substation being constructed on the northeast side of Stevensville. The line and substation are part of a $13 million upgrade intended at improving the reliability of electric service and meeting anticipated growth on the energy grid in the area. The upgrade is part of a broad program of investment by NorthWestern in essential electric and natural gas infrastructure across its Montana service territory.

NorthWestern recently joined with community leaders and others to plant about 27 trees along the path between the Forest Service property and the Fort Owen Road. The trees, which replaced trees removed this spring, were selected for their appearance and the fact they will reach no higher than 25 or 30 feet, avoiding possible interference with the new transmission line.
