 04. PROJECT:Baggs Water Supply
SPONSOR:Town of Baggs
LOCATION:Carbon County
PROGRAM:New Development
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
Level II 36 2000 I $50,000 2002

The residents of the town of Baggs utilize treated water from a Little Snake River intake diversion. High turbidity counts (NTU's) during spring runoff have plagued the town in the form of drinking water standard exceedences. Because of the water quality violation, the town applied to explore groundwater options.

The Level II study of the existing water supply and treatment system was completed as a continuance of the WWDC Groundwater Grant study awarded the town in 1999. The purpose of the study was to investigate alternative diversion systems, utilizing results of 1999 test well drilling, and prepare conceptual designs, cost estimates, economic analysis, and project financing guidelines for funding opportunities.

The WWDC recommends the project be advanced to Level III in the Rehabilitation Program with an appropriation of $92,000. The financing plan includes a 50% grant, $92,000, from WWDC and a 50% loan, $92,000 from the USDA Rural Utility Service.
