 54. PROJECT:Hot Springs Rural Water System
SPONSOR:Lucerne Water and Sewer District
LOCATION:Hot Springs County
PROGRAM:New Development
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
Level I 10 1994 I $100,000   1996
Level II 15 1996 I Hold* 1998
Level II 82 1998 I $100,000   2000

In 1994 the Washakie County Commissioners applied for a Level I study to evaluate the potential of providing water to rural areas in the Worland vicinity. There has been substantial residential development in rural Washakie County, and because groundwater is generally poor in the area there is need for a centralized water system.

Now in 1999, the Lucerne water users are interested in what effects an expanded regional water system from the Washakie Rural System and/or a new well would have on the supply, quality, and costs of water in the Hot Springs County area. This would be a pipeline project similar to the Washakie Rural System. The water users in this area include the town of Kirby, the east side of the Big Horn River, Red Lane, East Thermopolis, Thermopolis, and South Thermopolis. New improvements in this area could include a well, transmission lines and a tank.

The WWDC recommends that the project be advanced to Level II status in the New Development Program with an appropriation of $125,000.
