 01. PROJECT:Afton Water Supply
SPONSOR:Town of Afton
LOCATION:Lincoln County
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
Level II 81 1999 II $75,000   2000
Level III 96 2000 II $450,000* 2004
*50% grant, 50% loan (7 1/4%, 30 years)

The town of Afton is performing rehabilitative construction of the Periodic Springs pipeline. The construction effort consists of canyon wall rock, rubble, and boulder removal; the importation of bedding material and concrete to set a pipe bed; and the installation of approximately 1000 feet of pipeline from the spring outlet down (approx. 170 foot elevation drop) to the existing 97,000 gallon storage tank. The existing pipeline is quite vulnerable, i.e., subject to rockfall, therefore it is critical to the town's water supply that the pipeline be replaced and securely re-routed.

A contract with BRS, Inc. has been negotiated by the town for project design and construction administration services for the project. Removal of the canyon wall rock slabs, which rockfall was threatening the existing pipeline, were successfully removed in the late fall of 2000 by Roberts Construction of Evanston, Wyoming. Design of the relocated line is anticipated to be completed by February, 2001, with construction completed in the fall of 2001.

No legislative action is required.
