 22. PROJECT:Corner Mountain Water Supply
SPONSOR:Corner Mountain Water and Sewer District
LOCATION:Albany County
PROGRAM:New Development
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
Level I 8 1995 I $25,000 1996
Level II 15 1996 I Hold 1998
Level II 46 1997 I $350,000 1998

The Corner Mountain area is located north of Centennial, Wyoming. The District boundaries include up to 350 potential taps, but planning has been based on 90 taps. The District requested WWDC assistance to determine the feasibility of constructing a groundwater based centralized water system. The WWDC has completed a Level I analysis of the areas around Centennial, Wyoming.

The Level I study delineated the potential service areas, identified and evaluated water supply alternatives, and developed preliminary plans and cost estimates. Development of a groundwater source appeared to be the best alternative, so the sponsor requested WWDC proceed with a Level II study to drill and test the area aquifers. Pumping water from Centennial was analyzed, however, it was too costly to be given further consideration.

The sponsor has been attempting to finalize formation of their district, but several issues beyond their control have delayed that process. They expect to have their district in place by Spring, 1998, at which time the Level II study authorized by the 1997 Legislature will proceed.

No legislative action is required.
