 19. PROJECT:Cody Raw Water
LEVEL:New Application
SPONSOR:City of Cody
LOCATION:Park County

The sponsor currently utilizes a raw water system for the main part of town that satisfies the irrigation needs of its residents, and the park and golf course irrigation demands for the city. The raw water system has been in existence for many years and is in need of updated pumping, conveyance, and storage facilities. The Shoshone Pipeline, which meets the potable water needs of the Northern Bighorn Basin, was designed assuming Cody's raw water system would continue to meet the raw water needs of the area, thereby reducing the design capacity of the Shoshone Pipeline.

The sponsor has acquired the services of Engineering Associates to prepare a Level II study and cost estimates for rehabilitation of their existing raw water system, and for expansion of that system into the rest of the city. The sponsor has decided to proceed with this effort in phases, starting with the rehabilitation portion of the project. The rehabilitation effort includes: new pumping equipment at New Cody Reservoir, an upgrade to the existing pumping equipment, additional pumping equipment at Beck Lake, a new 1 million gallon storage tank at a higher elevation, and 10,880 feet of new 8 - 18 inch transmission main. The total project budget is $1,700,000.

The WWDC recommends that the project be incorporated in the Level III program with an appropriation of $850,000. The financing plan will include a 50% grant ($850,000) for the WWDC eligible components. The sponsor will provide the remaining $850,000 from other sources.
