 92. PROJECT:Rock Springs East Water Supply
SPONSOR:Green River-Rock Springs-Sweetwater County Joint Powers Water Board
LOCATION:Sweetwater County
PROGRAM:New Development
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
Level I 8 1995 I $50,000   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.

Several areas east of Rock Springs would like to receive water from the Rock Springs water supply system. In order to supply water to the area, a new transmission pipeline would be required. In particular, the Arrowhead Springs subdivision, located 4.5 miles southeast of the city, is in need of a centralized water supply. SF Industries may be interested in participating in the project. Further, the Sweetwater County Airport, located 7 miles east of Rock Springs, would like water service.

The Level I study delineated a service area and provided preliminary designs and cost estimates for the pipeline.

The WWDC is recommending that the project remain on Level II-Hold status.
