 43. PROJECT:Laramie Rehabilitation
SPONSOR:City of Laramie
LOCATION:Albany County
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
Level III 206 1995 II $550,000* 1996
*50% grant, 50% loan (4%, 20 years)

The 1994 Master Plan study evaluated various options for expanding Laramie's water supply, storage, treatment, transmission and distribution system to meet expanding demands. The study recommended a long-term schedule for improving both the surface and groundwater supply systems. In 1995 recommendations for Level III construction funding were made from both the New Development and Rehabilitation accounts.

The 1995 rehabilitation appropriation addressed rehabilitation of an existing storage facility and Soldier Springs. This work is underway and scheduled for completion in 1996. The 1996 project will include the replacement of portions of the water supply pipeline between the water treatment plant and the city, which is necessary to insure reliable use of the city's surface water supply. This recommendation addresses the second phase of a long-term program of system improvements.

The Commission recommends that the project be continued in the Rehabilitation Program at Level III status and that the appropriation be increased from $550,000 to $1,750,000 or $1,200,000. The recommended financing plan would remain a 50% grant and a 50% loan at an interest rate of 4% and a term of 20 years.
