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
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.
