 91. PROJECT:Rock River Transmission Pipeline
SPONSOR:Town of Rock River
LOCATION:Albany County
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
Level III 59 1996 II $670,000* 1999
*50% grant, balance of project cost from capital facilities tax

In 1998 the Town of Rock River received a Level III grant in the amount of $670,000 from Water Development Account II. The grant is for 50% of the WWDC eligible project costs with the balance of the project to be financed with proceeds from a 1998 Albany County capital facilities tax.

The Level III project includes the replacement of the final five miles of a 14.2 mile transmission pipeline and the enlargement of the town's infiltration gallery on Rock Creek. The enlargement of the infiltration gallery will reduce the need for frequent backwashing during high turbidity periods, saving the town considerable costs associated with operations and maintenance, while increasing the quality of water being delivered to the water treatment plant. The transmission line replacement will complete the replacement project which the town began in the 1980's to ensure a more dependable source of water supply.

Construction of the transmission line replacement is essentially complete. Final project cleanup and route restoration will be accomplished in the fall of 1999. Design of the infiltration gallery and intake modifications has been complete with construction of the improvements to be started in the spring of 2000 and completed by October 2000.

No legislative action is required for this project.
