 45. PROJECT:Guernsey Water Supply
SPONSOR:Town of Guernsey
LOCATION:Platte County
PROGRAM:New Development
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
Level I 8 1995 I $75,000 1996
Level III 59 1996 II $550,000 1999

In 1994, Guernsey and Hartville submitted applications requesting assistance in evaluating water supply, treatment, storage, transmission and distribution systems. Since the two municipalities are in proximity and take water from the same source (shallow wells along the North Platte River), the Commission conducted a joint Level I Master Plan study to determine the feasibility of a regional approach to solving the area's water supply problems. The study determined that a combined system was not feasible. Two separate project reports were submitted, with separate recommendations for each community. Guernsey's existing supply source is a series of wells into the North Platte alluvium. This project includes replacing one of the older and more vulnerable wells with a new production well, and provided the necessary well head appurtenances, controls and pipeline connections to incorporate the new well into the existing system. In 1996 the Commission recommended that the project be advanced in the New Development Program at Level III status with a budget of $550,000. The financing plan included a 67% grant and a 33% loan at an interest rate of 4% and a term of 20 years. In 1997 the new well was drilled and developed. It is anticipated that in 1998 the new pipeline and controls will be constructed which will connect the new well to the existing water distribution system.

No legislative action is required on this project.
