Sheridan’s Hi Tech Business Park is an ideal location for niche manufacturing, data centers and transportation hubs. This 24.14-acre business park is located in northwest Sheridan, Wyoming off of Yellowtail Drive near the North Main I-90 interchange. A new exchange directly to I-90 is under construction with completion scheduled in 2018.
Quadrant Power Grid
MDU distributes the power under local franchise arrangement to the Hi Tech Business Park. For the city as a whole MDU has a combination of 230kV and 41.6kV transmission lines in a couple of small loops in the downtown area and a large loop surrounding the city and tying back into the Sheridan PP&L substation. This design offers looped service to much of the local market.
Sheridan Substation | (called Sheridan PP&L Sub) is part of three (3) 230kV looped routes creating a substantially robust or reliable grid. Current expansion plans include extension of the 41.6kV transmission line service into the Sheridan Hi-Tech Business Park and the Wrench Ranch area (See Exhibit 3). Within this expansion are newly constructed transmission lines and substations to create a loop through the Business Park providing 10MW to 20 MW of looped or “protected” power.
ACT currently has dark fiber facilities and finished fiber facilities and services in the Hi-Tech Business Park. The ACT Central Office is located within one (1) mile of the park. In the event that a business is interested in locating their facility in the Hi-Tech Business Park, ACT has the ability to provide fiber or fiber based services within approximately 45 to 60 days, depending on the exact location of the business. Should there be a need for additional inner duct or fibers beyond what ACT currently has in place, the company plans to place additional fiber and duct in 2014.
Within the City of Sheridan, ACT’s core access network consisting of a 2.5 Gbps SONET Ringed network supports traditional TDM based services such as Digital Signal level 1 and 3 (DS-1/DS-3) and Optical Carrier Services at OC-3 (155.52 Mbps) and OC-12 (622.08 Mbps). For the delivery of Ethernet services, ACT has deployed a ringed “protected”10 Gbps network for support of copper based Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) services at data rates up to 50Mbps and Fiber to the Premise (FTTP) at data rates up to 1 Gbps. Ethernet services are delivered over Passive Optical network (PON, Active Ethernet (AE) or Carrier Ethernet equipment to the customer’s premises. The local city-wide network can easily be augmented to provide one or more 10Gbps protected circuits or lease/IRU fiber that interconnects with ACT’s protected regional network. The Hi-Tech Business Park is located in an area served by Advanced Communications Technology (ACT). ACT has deployed a core transport network consisting of traditional protected Synchronous Optical Network (SONET) operating at multiple 2.5 Gigabits per second (Gbps), and a next generation DWDM Ethernet over SONET network operating over multiple 10 Gbps wavelengths which are upgradeable to 100 Gbps.

Should there be a need for additional inner duct or fibers beyond what ACT currently has in place, the company plans to place additional fiber and duct in 2014. The East 5th Expansion is served by a 2” polyethylene gas main in Brundage Lane. From Brundage it follows Aviation Drive, then is looped throughout Phase I on Aero Loop. The distribution pressure is 55 PSI and the proposed site is served from a border station approximately 9,500 ft. away. MDU would be able to provide 8 to 10 mcf per hour to the existing pipeline within the SCA Business Park.
The Sheridan and Big Goose Treatment Plants (PWSID # 5600052C) have permitted capacities of 14.0 MGD and 4.5 MGD respectively. The average day demand at the Sheridan WTP is 3.8 MGD with peak day demand reaching 9 MGD. The Sheridan water system, in consideration of available water rights during irrigation season, has an allocated capacity of 3.8 MGD leaving an available capacity of 6.5 MGD.
The City of Sheridan sanitary sewer collection system is available to use and the wastewater treatment facility (WWTF) has the available capacity to providing sewer service to the Hi-Tech Business Park. A 12-inch sanitary sewer collector that enlarges to a 15-inch line currently resides in Yellowtail Drive along its northern boundary. An 8-inch sanitary sewer lateral line runs along the southern boundary and connects into the 15-inch collector in Yellowtail Drive. Each will provide adequate supply to the site with the 12-inch and 15-inch line having the most significant carrying capacity of 3.7 MDG and 4.7 MDG respectively. There is currently .1 MGD of that capacity currently allocated. This system gravity feeds to a new pump station approximately .5 miles downstream where it is pumped directly to the WWTF. This lift station has a current capacity of 1.6 MGD but can be expanded to a capacity of 5.2 MGD.
The Sheridan Wastewater Treatment Facility has a design and permitted capacity of 4.4 MGD; however, it is capable of continually treating up to 7.0 MGD. The average day demands on the WWTF are 2.3 MGD leaving an available capacity of 2.1 MGD of which .1 MGD has been allocated.
The property is currently owned by a local economic development entity, the Sheridan Economic and Educational Development Authority (SEEDA). SEEDA has banked this property to attract businesses to Sheridan.
