LOCATION:Sweetwater County
PROGRAM:New Development

Level II 82 1998 I $30,000 2000

The 1998 Level II project looked at combining the West Side Sewer & Water District with several other well water users in the area west of Rock Springs in a common water system. The water supply for the project will be obtained from the City of Green River, Wyoming; City of Rock Springs, Wyoming, Sweetwater County, State of Wyoming Joint Power Water Board through a pipeline that is operated and maintained by the City of Rock Springs. The water users in the area consist of a collection of homes, trailer courts and businesses. The water users in this area currently get their water from private wells and a 12 inch and a 6 inch water lines which are connected to the old Rock Springs water system 20 inch line. The old 20 inch Rock Springs water system line in the area was built around 1929 and the district members state that it is in constant need of repair.

The 1998 Level II project looks at providing three new water system loops in the area of west Rock Springs by replacing private wells and most of the old water system. The new development portion of the project will provide new transmission mains in the south and north areas of west Rock Springs. The portion of the project funded from water development account II will rehabilitate the old transmission main in the west area of west Rock Springs.
