West Central Lateral


Kapur & Associates assisted We Energies with the design and construction management of a natural gas lateral. The pipeline spanned nearly 75 miles through Eau Claire or Clark, Jackson, and Monroe counties.

Two alternatives routes were being considered for this project requiring Kapur to survey and prepare easements for both routes, totaling more than 185 miles of corridor. Deliverables for this portion of the project include existing surfaces, cross sections, point clouds, and utility locates.

The West Central Lateral project will deliver previously unavailable natural gas to 6 communities including the major communities of Black River Falls and Tomah, Wisconsin.
