110.PROJECT:West Side/Rock Springs Water Supply
LEVEL:New Application
SPONSOR:West Side Water & Sewer District
LOCATION:Sweetwater County
PROGRAM:New Development

The West Side Sewer & Water District would like to join several other well water users in the area west of Rock Springs in a common water system loop off the Rock Springs water system. The water users in the area consist of a collection of homes, trailer courts and businesses at the present time. The water users in this area currently get their water from private wells and a 12 inch to 6 inch tap line off of the old Rock Springs water system 20 inch line. The old 12 tap line is leaking and is in constant need of repair.

A new Rock Springs water system loop in this area would replace the private wells and some if not all of the old water system, providing a safe reliable source of water to the existing and expanding population in this area of Sweetwater County west of Rock Springs.

The district is the original applicant for this project. Both the city of Rock Springs and the RSGRJPB will be involved in this project. The City of Rock Springs and the RSGRJPB will need to assume some of the ownership and operation of the new system.

The WWDC recommends that the project be incorporated into the New Development Program at Level II status with an appropriation of $30,000.
