Sheridan Water System Level I Study-Final Report 2019

Sheridan Area Water Supply – Joint Powers Board (SAWS-JPB) is the rural water system surrounding the City of Sheridan. In the Public Works office, we take applications to connect to the water system, prepare water service agreements with developers, and administer board business such as monthly meetings, budget and finances, and contracts with consultants and contractors. We maintain records, do future planning, and coordinate with the City of Sheridan for billing and maintenance of the water system.

OverviewThe objective of the SAWS-JPB is to supply rural water customers and the City of Sheridan with potable water. By agreement with the Sheridan County Commissioners, the Sheridan County Public Works Director acts as Administrator for the SAWS-JPB. Also by agreement with the City Council of Sheridan, the physical system of reservoirs, intakes, treatment plants, water storage tanks, pumping stations, transmission mains, distribution mains and meters are operated and maintained by the City of Sheridan’s Utility Department. By the same agreement, the City of Sheridan Billing and Collection Departments bill the SAWS-JPB customers,  and collect and deposit the revenues to the SAWS-JPB operating account. SAWS-JPB pays the City and County for their services.
