 71. PROJECT:Riverton Master Plan
LEVEL:New Application
SPONSOR:City of Riverton
LOCATION:Fremont County
PROGRAM:New Development

The sponsor utilizes 12 wells, a surface intake from the LeClair Canal and a 4 MGD water treatment plant to meet the needs of its residents. The treatment plant is used to meet peak summer demands, and operates from May through September. During peak demand days this plant operates at 80% of its rated capacity.

The sponsor has indicated there are 1500-3000 people living on the periphery of Riverton, and at least 15 community water systems in and around the city. They have seen consistent growth in the city and expect this trend to continue. Further, they expect this growth to include an outward movement of their boundaries that may take in some or all of the outlying community water systems. These factors will require the sponsor's water system to expand.

The sponsor believes it will be the primary water supplier in this area, and desires to conduct this study to assist them in planning for their future. Some of the items they would like to examine are: planning area boundaries, facilities inventory, growth projections, projected water supply needs, development of alternatives to meet these needs, and cost estimates for these alternatives.

The WWDC recommends the project be incorporated into the New Development program at Level I, with an appropriation of $150,000.
