Chubbuck, Well #6, Tank, and Booster Station


Keller Associates completed a comprehensive planning study for the City of Chubbuck’s drinking water system. As a result of the capital improvements plan, the City proceeded forward with a new well, tank and booster station facility. Prior to completing the improvements, the City was unable to meet redundant source capacity and fell short on storage capacity. This facility provides the necessary pumping capacity required in the growing northwest portion of the City. Keller Associates provided the predesign, design, construction administration, and construction observation services for the City’s Well #6 Water Tank, Booster Station and Well House Facilities.
