The City of Worland installed a new water line to the Boy's School two
years ago that passes very near to the sponsor's service area. At the
time that line was constructed, the city installed a tap to accommodate
the sponsor's future plans for a water system.
The sponsor has requested assistance herein to complete a rural water
system for their subdivision. A Level II study should be performed to
provide the necessary preliminary design and cost information.
There are currently about 45 people living in the service area, with a
number of unoccupied lots. They predict there will be 20 taps on their
system initially, and are confident that additional requests will be
made for taps once the system moves forward. The sponsor currently
utilizes individual wells of marginal quality, and septic systems.
RECOMMENDED LEGISLATIVE ACTION:
The WWDC recommends that the project be incorporated in to the New
Development Program at Level II with an appropriation of $25,000.
