 13. PROJECT:Carpenter Water Supply
SPONSOR:Carpenter Water and Sewer District
LOCATION:Laramie County
PROGRAM:New Development
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
Level II 15 1996 I $100,000 1998

The community of Carpenter has a population of approximately 108 people. Presently, the community is served by individual wells, some of which are contaminated by a leaking gas tank and surrounding septic systems. In 1995, the community formed the Carpenter Water and Sewer District so it could address its existing water supply problems.

WWDC staff prepared a Level I study in 1995 that recommended construction of a groundwater source, an elevated storage tank, transmission and distribution lines, and appurtenances. In 1996 a Level II study was performed to prepare conceptual designs and cost estimates, which shows the total project cost to be $860,000. The WWDC eligible portion of the total project cost is $538,000, with RUS funding committed for a portion of the remainder, and a FLB request under consideration.

The WWDC recommends the project be advanced to Level III status in the New Development Program, with an appropriation of $360,000. The financing plan includes a grant for 67% of the WWDC eligible portion of the project, with RUS and FLB providing the remainder of the required funding.
