 18. PROJECT:Corn Creek Irrigation
SPONSOR:Corn Creek Irrigation District
LOCATION:Goshen County
PROGRAM:New Development
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
Level II 10 1994 I Hold   1996
Level II 15 1996 I Hold   1998
Level II 82 1998 I Hold* 2000
*A block appropriation of $15,000 was made for all hold projects

The concept of the project is to use existing storage in Glendo and Grayrocks Reservoirs to irrigate and develop approximately 15,000 acres of new lands in Goshen County. 1985 estimates indicated a project cost of $45M. As the initial economic analysis indicated that the sponsor could not financially support a loan for 25% of the project costs and operation and maintenance costs, the project has been put on hold in order for the sponsors to re-evaluate their financial abilities, prepare an environmental assessment and secure water supplies. This project is one of the issues being considered in the North Platte law suit.

The WWDC recommends that the project be retained at Level II-Hold status.
