 32. PROJECT:Evanston Master Plan
SPONSOR:City of Evanston
LOCATION:Uinta County
PROGRAM:New Development
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
Level II 46 1997 I $85,000 1998

Evanston has experienced considerable growth and is nearing the capacity of its water supply system. The city presently has adequate raw water supply and reservoir storage. A major problem is the demand for treated water to irrigate parks, ball field and other large green areas. The city's system uses water from the Bear River and Sulphur Creek Reservoir as well as four in-town wells. The application requests that the resources be evaluated to determine the most cost effective means of providing an adequate water supply to the residents of Evanston in the future.

In 1984 the WWDC prepared the "Upper Bear River Drainage Water Resource Investigation". The report provided reconnaissance level information on this area. Then in 1997 a Level II study evaluated conceptual designs and cost estimates to construct a raw water pipeline and upgrade the towns existing wells. The cost estimates show the total project cost to be $1,481,000.

The WWDC recommends the project be advanced to Level III status in the New Development Program, with a 1998 appropriation of $1,500,000. The financing plan includes a 60% grant for $900,000 and a 40% loan for $600,000 at 7.25% for 20 years.
