The Glenrock water system serves a population of about 3,000 people. There are 1042 active taps.
Water rates are $9.00 for the first 3000 gallons, $1.00/1000 gallons thereafter and water bills
average $28.00 per month.
The proposed Level II study was to 1) determine water supply needs, 2) inventory and assess the
transfer of surface and groundwater rights to best benefit the town in their pursuit of raw water
irrigation system development, 3) evaluate water quality and the condition of the wells, 4) evaluate
the suitability of irrigating with groundwater from the Park well, the South Recreation Complex
well, the Deer Creek well, the AML well, and Deer Creek surface water, 5) develop water supply
options, 6) complete preliminary designs and cost estimates for the water supply options, 7)
complete an economic study, and 8) ability to pay analysis, determine permitting and environmental
Sunrise Engineering was contracted to perform the analysis. The Level II study determined that the
most economical solution to the town of Glenrock's water supply problems was to increase the
potable water supply rather than to try to establish a raw water system. The engineer recommended
that a Casper formation test well be drilled to attempt to locate an added groundwater supply
