 46. PROJECT:Lander Master Plan
SPONSOR:City of Lander
LOCATION:Fremont County
PROGRAM:New Development
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
Level I 8 1995 I $100,000 1996

Growth in the city and the area surrounding the city prompted the city to request analysis of their problems. The rural areas around Lander typically obtain their water from wells, which are of poor quality and quantity, or they haul their water from Lander. Several areas, including Tweed Lane, South of Lander, Northeast of Lander, and Baldwin Creek, have approached the city requesting water service. However, the city was uncertain whether their system could reliably meet these and other future water service demands. A Level I master plan to serve as a planning tool to respond to these requests was completed.

The Level I study assessed the physical and economical limits of the existing system to serve an expanded service area. The study determined the water supply needs of that area, and evaluating the capability of Lander's existing water supply to meet those needs. The study made recommendations regarding the upgrading that will be required before the City can serve the rural areas. The study developed preliminary designs and cost estimates for the facilities identified as needing improvements.

The city prioritized the system improvements and requested a Level II evaluation of the supply line to the treatment plant, enlargement of the treatment plant, and additional storage at the treatment plant and on Nicol Hill. These improvements were viewed by the city as being necessary to position its self to serve the surrounding area.

The WWDC recommends that the project be advanced to Level II with an appropriation of $175,000.
