 83. PROJECT:Pine Bluffs Supply
SPONSOR:Town of Pine Bluffs
LOCATION:Laramie County
PROGRAM:New Development
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
Level I 10 1994 I $75,000 1996
Level II 8 1995 I $150,000 1996

The Town of Pine Bluff's water wells are currently connected to the town's distribution system. A Level I study funded by the WWDC determined the need for a direct transmission line connecting the town's existing wells to the storage tank. In 1995, a Level II study looked at rehabilitation of the town's existing wells as well as location, sizing and costs associated with a new transmission pipeline. A Level III construction project is ongoing at this time; a second phase of the Level III project would be a transmission line that would allow the town to disinfect their drinking water in accordance with any proposed federal requirements. The proposed transmission line would provide centralized disinfection and would provide a cost effective method to avoid individual disinfection equipment at each well. The town currently has six wells, of which only three are currently being disinfected, and of those, two have little to no contact time.

The WWDC recommends the project be advanced to Level III in the New Development Program with an appropriation of $1,245,000. The financing would include a 60% grant for $747,000 and a 40% loan of $498,000 at 7.25% interest for 20 years.
