The paper summarizes the design elements that were incorporated into the City of Bozeman Hyalite/Sourdough Water Treatment Plant to address the cold weather raw water conditions expected, the known wildfire vulnerability within the system, and the susceptibility of the raw water to human impact. A cursory summary of the new water treatment plant process design, including preliminary treatment, membrane installation, and solids handling is provided. The discussion highlights the operations/maintenance design features, operator safety enhancements including chemical handling during design, ancillary building enhancements for ease of operation, and the key systems needed for mitigation of risks due to potential wildfires within the watersheds.
