 67. PROJECT:Manville Water Supply
SPONSOR:Town of Manville
LOCATION:Niobrara County
PROGRAM:New Development
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
Level II 150 1996 I $200,000 1998

The town is presently served by two wells about 200 feet deep into the Arikaree Formation. The wells are 70 years old, located only about 30 feet apart in the same building. The town recently completed renovation of their 25,000 gallon storage tank using Farm Loan Board funds, and has diligently maintained the distribution portion of their system. In 1996, the Commission recommended that the project be incorporated into the New Development Program at Level II with a budget of $200,000. This Level II project consisted of a well siting study, construction and testing of production-sized well, and conceptual plans and cost estimates for converting the test well to production status and connecting the new well to the town's existing distribution system.

The well was successfully completed, and the town is now requesting funds to convert the test well to a production well, and to rehabilitate and improve one of the town's existing wells.

The Commission recommends that this project be advanced to Level III construction status in the New Development Program with an appropriation of $69,000 in the form of a non-reimbursable grant, which is 60% of estimated total project costs of $115,000. The town propose to pay the remaining portion of estimated construction costs, plus $13,065 which represents 40% of the cost of drilling the production, from reserve funds.
