 50. PROJECT:Meeteetse Water Supply
SPONSOR:Town of Meeteetse
LOCATION:Park County
PROGRAM:New Development
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
Level I 8 1995 I $75,000 1996

The 1990 census shows Meeteetse has a population of 386. They reportedly have 240 taps in town, there are 32 existing taps in the rural areas they could serve, and there is a proposed new development southeast of town.

A Level I report was completed in 1995. The report determined that areas around Meeteetse are developing. These areas are served by individual wells with poor groundwater quality. The residents of the rural areas have not formed a district and the report indicated that the monthly cost of city water would be in excess of $100. This projected cost has led many rural residents to voice their opposition to the project. In addition, the Level I report identified several improvements to the town's water treatment system. The project sponsor has requested a Level II study to determine the feasibility of 1) relocating the intake to the treatment plant, 2) relocating the treatment plant, 3) improving the existing treatment plant and 4) protecting the existing intake and treatment plant from bank erosion.

The WWDC recommends that the project be advanced in the New Development Program to Level II status with an appropriation of $100,000.
