 99. PROJECT:Wright Water Supply
LEVEL:New Application
SPONSOR:Wright Water and Sewer District
LOCATION:Campbell County

The Wright Water and Sewer District receives water from four Fort Union wells, depth ranging from 2662' to 3115'. The District has experienced declining production from all four wells. Using the District's own resources, two wells were rehabilitated in 1995. The project was successful in increasing production in these two wells, and the District would like to duplicate the procedure in the two remaining wells. The District currently serves a population of 1400 people through 357 taps. The system is metered and rates are $12 per month for the first 9,000 gallons plus $1.35 per 1000 gallons for use over 9,000 gallons per month. Average monthly water bills are reported to be $22.00, below the state average of $26.62. The District is requesting grant funding only, and will supply the local match from reserve funds. Ability to repay a project loan is therefore not an issue. The total project budget is $100,000.

The WWDC recommends the project be advanced to Level III construction status with an appropriation for a grant of $50,000. The District intends to fund the balance of costs from reserve funds.
