The water supply system for the community of Lance Creek was constructed by an oil company in 1946. There are 11 miles of lines providing water for agricultural, industrial, commercial and domestic uses through a total of 25 taps. There are leaks in the transmission lines. The 1997 Level III appropriation is to finance backflow prevention devices on service lines, rehabilitate well pumps and controls, and provide disinfection equipment. The 1998 appropriation is to finance further improvements to the district, such as sliplining or replacing transmission lines, rehabilitating or replacing storage facilities, and related improvements as needed. RUS will finance the portion of the project not financed by WWDC. Construction is anticipated to begin and be completed in 1999.

No legislative action is recommended.
