108.PROJECT:Torrington Water Supply
SPONSOR:Town of Torrington
LOCATION:Goshen County
PROGRAM:New Development
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
Level I 8 1995 I $100,000   1996
Level I 15 1996 I $150,000   1998
Level III 38 1998 I $4,500,000* 2002
*60% grant, 40% loan (7.25%, 30 years)

The Town of Torrington received financing from the 1998 Legislature to complete a new municipal well field and bring the water into the town's distribution system. It is anticipated that loan funds will be offset by financing from RUS.

The purpose of the project is to replace older high nitrate wells with new wells located closer to the North Platte River, which are expected to be lower in nitrates. This approach has been used successfully in other communities in the region. Project components include wells, pumps, electrical service, control and disinfection facilities, telemetry, booster pumps, pipe, and appurtenances.

The initial production well and test wells will be drilled early in 2000. The airport booster pump station will also be constructed in the spring of 2000. The remaining production wells and pipeline and appurtenances will proceed depending upon the water quality and quantity results from the initial production well and test wells. The project is anticipated to be complete by the summer of 2001.

No legislative action is recommended.
