Active Projects

    1. PROJECT:Aladdin Water Supply
SPONSOR:Aladdin Community Water District
LOCATION:Crook County
PROGRAM:New Development
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
Level I 10 1994 I $25,000   1996
Level II 8 1995 I $275,000   1996
Level II 15 1996 I Hold* 1998
*A block appropriation of $15,000 was made for all hold projects.

The WWDC completed a Level I study in 1994 which identified a well site and developed cost estimates which yield monthly rates acceptable to district members. The water district requested that WWDC proceed to Level II to construct a Madison test well and develop conceptual level plans for storage and transmission components.

A Level II study was completed in 1995 wherein a good groundwater supply was located. During the Level II process, the project service area was reduced to only the immediate Aladdin area, which includes fourteen (14) taps. Conceptual level designs and cost estimates were completed for the downsized system. The total Level III project cost was estimated at $336,329, which includes the Level II well costs ($85,641), the transmission system ($230,778), and the distribution and chlorination systems ($19,910). The distribution and chlorination systems are not eligible for WWDC participation. Presently, the district is investigating financing alternatives.

The 1996 Legislature placed a restriction on the project that requires there has to be 25 active domestic taps before the well can be activated.

The WWDC recommends that the project remain on Level II-Hold status.
