 62. PROJECT:Poison Spider Water Supply
SPONSOR:Poison Spider Water Company
LOCATION:Natrona County
PROGRAM:New Development
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
Level III 206 1995 I $640,000* 1998
*67% grant, 33% loan (4%, 40 years)

The existing water treatment facilities serving the Poison Spider Water Company (PSWC) are not in compliance with EPA requirements. EPA has issued an order to Poison Spider to correct the deficiencies. There are approximately 30 residences in the Poison Spider Service and Improvement District. The area encompasses approximately 24 square miles. The PSWC currently pumps water from the Platte River and the only existing treatment is chlorination.

The Level II report, completed in 1994, noted numerous deficiencies in the district's distribution system that may be beyond the financial capability of the district to fix. The Level II study evaluated several water supply options including development of a deep well, drilling an alluvial well, and construction of a transmission pipeline to the Pioneer Water and Sewer District. A connection to the Pioneer Water and Sewer District with an 8" pipeline was determined to be the most technologically feasible and cost effective option to provide water to the Poison Spider Service and Improvement District. The project components that are recommended for funding may be taken over by the Natrona Regional Water Supply Joint Powers Board. The project is currently under construction and will be completed in early 1996.

No legislative action is required on this project.
