 91. PROJECT:Ryan Park Water Supply
SPONSOR:Northwest Ryan Park Water and Sewer District
LOCATION:Carbon County
PROGRAM:New Development
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
Level III-I 206 1995 I $134,000* 1998
*67% grant

There are 34 existing homes and cabins in the Northwest Ryan Park Water and Sewer District. They currently obtain their water from springs and shallow wells, but these supplies have very low yields and are often of questionable quality.

The Level I study conducted in 1991 tentatively defined the service area, developed population projections, and developed water supply alternatives. The study showed a good potential for groundwater development and recommended a groundwater exploration program. Subsequently, the sponsor formed a water and sewer district and Level II funding was received from the 1992 Legislature.

In 1993, several exploratory wells were drilled, and a promising well site was located, however a testing program was needed to accurately assess the potential of the aquifer. In 1994, two production wells were constructed and tested, and conceptual designs and cost estimates were prepared. The total project budget is $1,000,000. Presently, the district is seeking funds for construction of the distribution system.

No legislative action is required on this project.
