    2. PROJECT:American Road Water Supply
SPONSOR:American Road Water and Sewer District
LOCATION:Campbell County
PROGRAM:New Development
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
Level III 45 1997 I $250,000* 2000
*60% grant, 40% loan (7.25%, 30 years)

American Road Water and Sewer District is located north of Interstate 90 about four miles east of Gillette. The District serves a population of 260 people through 63 taps in three small subdivisions. Average water rates are reported to be $50 per month, in excess of the state average of $32.95. The Gillette Area Master Plan identifies American Road as a remote system which should continue to be independent of the Regional System. The District has five shallow (300' to 500') wells into the Wasatch Formation. The wells produce inadequate amounts (total of 80 gpm) of poor quality water. All usage is metered, but no portion of water receipts are allocated to a sinking fund. However, the system does have a reserve fund available, and a loan from the Farm Loan Board for construction of a 100,000 gallon storage tank and control building. This project was completed in 1991, and the entire system is in excellent shape. In 1997 a new Fort Union well was drilled, developed, and the new water source was connected into the existing distribution and storage system. This new well has added approximately 120 gallons per minute to the water system. All work has been completed on this project with final payment to be made in January, 1998. The sponsor has provided 25% of the funding for this project through a grant from Campbell County, therefore, the loan portion has been decreased from 40% to 15%. In addition the sponsor has elected to pay the loan back in a single lump sum payment to be made in January, 1998 rather than taken the 30 years as allowed by the appropriation.

No legislative action is required on this project.
