 18. PROJECT:Cody Area Water Supply
SPONSOR:City of Cody
LOCATION:Park County
PROGRAM:New Development
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
Level II 8 1995 I $75,000 1996

The 1990 census indicates Cody has a population of 7,897, but the city reports considerable growth in the past three years. The present estimated population is 8,200. In addition, the areas around Cody are becoming more populated. The areas are presently served by shallow groundwater of poor quality. The city has requested WWDC assistance in the form of a Level II study to determine the feasibility of expanding its water service area to include three adjacent rural areas. These areas include both residential and industrial water users.

Part of the Level II study has been completed and an interim report has been rafted. The Level II study is evaluating alternatives for Cody to expand its existing system to serve the surrounding areas. Conceptual designs and cost estimates have been prepared for the proposed Valley View annexation area. Valley View is southwest of the Cody city limits. The interim report recommended a storage and transmission main improvements to enable the city to service Valley View and provide better pressure to residents currently within the city limits of Cody. Preliminary designs and cost estimates will be developed for the preferred alternatives to connect other adjacent areas to the Cody water system.

The WWDC recommends that the project be progressed to Level III status with an appropriation of $785,000 to complete the Valley View improvements. The recommended financing plan includes a 67% grant and a 33% loan with an interest rate of 4% and a term of twenty years.
