Project Reports

 75. PROJECT:Nine Mile
LEVEL:New Application
SPONSOR:Nine Mile Water Users
LOCATION:Albany County
PROGRAM:New Development

The Nine Mile water users are currently hauling water from Laramie to their storage tanks. One user has 1000 gallons per week hauled to her home at a rate of approximately $90.00 per month. The groundwater is not usable in the area due to high chemical content. In addition to having no drinking water, there were two major fires in the Nine Mile area in the last year and they have no water for fire fighting. The Nine Mile residents are currently in the process of forming a water and sewer district. They have also contacted the City of Laramie and indicated that they would like to purchase water from the city. The City of Laramie would like to know what the logistics are of providing water to this area and the commitment of the residents to making the water district work. This project should look at the supply and distribution options of the Laramie water supply and the costs to make the system work. This analysis will include the Seven Mile area that is currently being served by Laramie.

The WWDC recommends that the project be incorporated into the New Development Program at Level I status with an appropriation of $20,000.
