 39. PROJECT:Jackson Water Supply
SPONSOR:Town of Jackson
LOCATION:Teton County
PROGRAM:New Development
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
Level III 28 1994 I $2,300,000* 1997
*67% grant, 33% loan(4%, 25 years)

Jackson has a total permanent population of 4,700 and 2,200 taps. The town has a high water demand during peak tourist season. Jackson received $54,000 from the WWDC Groundwater Grant Program in August of 1993 to drill a test well to evaluate water quality parameters. Based on the data gathered through this exploratory drilling program, the town proposes to construct two additional production wells with well houses and controls, a standby generator, and transmission lines to connect the new wells to the existing system.

This is a typical extension of a WWDC Groundwater Grant Project wherein the information gathered during the testing program generates a Level III application for production wells and appurtenances. The project will allow the town to better serve the south Jackson area.

The well drilling program has been designed, is currently under construction, and will be completed this winter or the spring of 1996. The interconnecting pipelines are being designed. Total project construction should be competed in the fall of 1996 or the spring of 1997.

No legislative action is required for this project.
