Level I and II studies inventoried the existing system, evaluated water
supply needs, evaluated water supply alternatives and prepared a water
supply for the Town of Thayne. Preliminary plans and cost estimates
were developed for the preferred alternative.
In 1998, the Town of Thayne received $850,000 of Level III grant and
loan assistance for connecting the Level II test well to their system,
rehabilitating their spring, and constructing a new transmission line
from the springs to the town distribution system. The grant is for 60%
of the WWDC eligible project costs with a 40% loan at 7 1/4% interest
rate over thirty (30) years.
Construction of the well connection and pumphouse was completed in
March, 1999. Forsgren Associates, Inc. has completed the design of the
springs improvements and transmission line with anticipated completion
of the construction of this phase by the fall of 1999.
