New Irrigation System at Golf Course to be Installed

Anthony Pollreisz, K2 Radio

The city of Casper will pay roughly $1.33 million to replace outdated sections of the irrigation system at the Casper Municipal Golf Course.

Casper City Council approved the resolution 8-1 during its regular session on Tuesday. Ward II councilman Craig Hedquist was the lone dissenting vote.

Doug Follick, the city of Casper’s leisure services director, said rapidly increasing installation costs are forcing the city to act now. He also said the current system is nearing the end of its useful life.

“The sprinkler heads themselves are antiquated (and) we don’t have any way of isolating holes,” Follick said. “If we have a line break or an irrigation head that we need to change, we wouldn’t have to drain the entire (new) system to do that.”

Follick says the irrigation systems at Park Nine and Highland Nine will be replaced by June 2014.

American Civil Contractors Inc., a firm based out of Littleton, Colo., submitted the low bid of roughly $1.5 million. A $170,000 deduct charge will bring the final price tag down to around $1.33 million.

The new irrigation system is being paid for by unallocated one-cent ’13 sales tax funds and funds that were already set aside in one-cent ’14.
