 37. PROJECT:Hawk Springs Water Supply
SPONSOR:Hawk Springs Water and Sewer District
LOCATION:Goshen County
PROGRAM:New Development
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
Level II 8 1995 I $125,000 1996

The population of Hawk Springs is approximately 125, with an estimated 31 taps that would be served by a central water supply system. The Hawk Springs Water and Sewer District was formed in 1994 and requested a study to investigate alternative water sources, storage, and distribution facilities for the area in and around Hawk Springs, WY. Residents currently rely on individual wells. Some of these wells are contaminated by high levels of dissolved solids, radionuclides, chemicals, and septic systems.

A Level II study is currently underway to evaluate storage, distribution, transmission, and water supply alternatives. Exploratory well drilling and testing has been completed, with a suitable supply located west of the community. Preliminary designs, cost estimates, and economic analyses are currently underway for the preferred alternative. Average water rates and the ability of the users to repay capitol costs will be determined.

The WWDC recommends that the project be placed on Level II-Hold status.
