Progress is being made at the Pennington County Highway Department project! The crews just pulled the two existing fuel tanks out of the ground after installing two new fuel tanks a short distance away. Also, if you have driven by in the past couple days you might have noticed the large crane erecting the precast panels for the 24,300-square foot maintenance and office facility! The entire office facility will be made of these precast panels. Great stuff – got to love when it all starts coming together!
Last week, RCS Construction, Inc. was awarded the Woodstave Penstock Replacement Project in Spearfish, South Dakota. This project will consist of the replacement of: two woodstave penstocks with high-density polyethylene pipe; the improvements of the penstock drain system; fencing; gates; and the abandonment of two 42" woodstave penstocks. Woodstave penstocks were the original method for transporting water from a body of water into hydroelectric power plants. If you haven't seen one before, we encourage you to look up woodstave penstocks, it's pretty cool! Click here to read the article the Black Hills Pioneer wrote about the project.
