 61. PROJECT:Pinedale Master Plan
SPONSOR:Town of Pinedale
PROGRAM:New Development
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
Level I 10 1994 I $125,000 1996

The Town of Pinedale is an incorporated municipality with a population of approximately 1200 residents. A Level II report was completed in 1993 for the Town of Pinedale. The town was under an EPA order to filter its water system and/or complete a watershed control plan. In 1994, the town's Watershed Control Plan was accepted by the EPA. The town obtains water directly from Fremont Lake and does not filter the raw water. The raw water intake is 70 feet deep. Chlorination is provided. The Level II report noted the Town of Pinedale needs a new water tank, appurtenant piping, and equipment to meet chlorine detention times.

In 1993, the town requested funding for a Level I water supply master plan to assess present/future needs and to evaluate the entire water system. The Level I study was completed in 1995 and refined the work outlined in the Level II study. The Level I study delineated the potential service boundaries and evaluated deficiencies in their supply and distribution system. The master plan provides a complete evaluation of their existing water supply and distribution system and identifies those areas outside the present service area that may be served by an expansion of the water system based on projected growth. The recently completed Level I report recommended that the Town of Pinedale construct a new pipeline from Fremont Lake to town and additional chlorination to meet chlorine detention time requirements, and provide redundant chlorination. The cost for those items is estimated to be $3,550,000.

The WWDC recommends that the project be progressed to Level III status with an appropriation of $3,550,000 to construct a new transmission main from Fremont Lake to the Town of Pinedale's distribution system. The recommended financing plan includes a 67% grant and a 33% loan at an interest rate at 4% and a term of 20 years. However, if the town commits to install water meters, the term will be extended to 30 years.
