106.PROJECT:Thayne Water Supply
SPONSOR:Town of Thayne
LOCATION:Lincoln County
PROGRAM:New Development
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
Level I 8 1995 I $50,000   1996
Level II 15 1996 I $250,000   1998
Level III 38 1998 I $850,000* 2002
*60% grant; 40% loan (7 1/4%, 30 year)

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.

No legislative action is required for this project.
