 65. PROJECT:Lusk Water Supply
SPONSOR:Town of Lusk
LOCATION:Niobrara County
PROGRAM:New Development
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
Level I 10 1994 I $75,000   1996
Level II 8 1995 I $150,000   1996

The Town of Lusk's water supply system is supplied by five wells which are over 40 years old. Water is conveyed to the town through a pipeline with lead joints to their storage tanks. The town is having some difficulty meeting the EPA safe drinking water requirements.

Construction of the project is essentially complete. Final payment to the contractor is anticipated after January 1, 1998, and the project will be closed out shortly after that.

No legislative action is required for this project.
