Belle Fourche Day Street Lift Station

Dean Kurtz Construction was selected to serve the citizens of Belle Fourche by building them a new and improved lift station, providing the community with fresh water. The previous lift station was built in 1980 and had started to succumb to natural wear and tear as well as mother nature. The new Day Street Lift Station was constructed directly beside the previous lift station on the end of Day Street where it meets the Belle Fourche River. This allowed the current lift station to continue servicing its customers while the new one was constructed and began its transition into the new acting lift station.
