SPONSOR:Town of Encampment
LOCATION:Carbon County
PROGRAM:New Development
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
Level II 46 1997 I $45,000   1998
Level III 38 1998 I $137,000* 2001
*60% grant

The town of Encampment received a grant appropriation of $137,000 for 60% of the WWDC eligible portion of the project. The remainder of the project is financed by the town from other sources.

The purpose of the project is to connect the raw water irrigation pipe network to the town cemetery. Funding is also provided to connect the town's drinking water system to the Sierra Madre Water and Sewer Joint Powers Board water system. Project components include pipe, valves, and fittings necessary to make the connection functional.

The town has completed construction of the raw water irrigation system expansion. Work was performed with town crews and was financed by a capital facilities tax. The town and the Sierra Madre Water and Sewer Joint Powers Board are negotiating to see if a connection is feasible.

No legislative action is recommended.
