Public Involvement Leads to Watering Station

As part of the J-U-B designed Sunset Peak Water Tank project in the Boise foothills for SUEZ, The Langdon Group (TLG) was contacted by a trail user with the idea of a watering station for thirsty dogs at the Hulls Gulch Trailhead, near the project area.

TLG coordinated with the City of Boise and the construction contractor, McAlvain Companies, Inc., to facilitate the installation of a combined drinking fountain/bottle fill/dog watering fountain. The project was funded through donations by SUEZ, J-U-B, McAlvain and the trail user, “North End Eric,” in partnership with the City of Boise.

These efforts were commemorated with a plaque recognizing the partnership. The suggestion, as part of the public involvement process, resulted in making the community and trail more enjoyable for everyone…and their dogs.
