 53. PROJECT:Hawk Springs Water Supply

LOCATION:Goshen County
PROGRAM:New Development
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
Level II 8 1995 I $125,000   1996
Level II 15 1996 I Hold   1998
Level II 82 1998 I Hold   2000

*A block appropriation of $15,000 was made for all hold projects.

The population of Hawk Springs is approximately 125, with an estimated 31 taps that would be served by a central water supply system. The Hawk Springs Water and Sewer District was formed in 1994. The district requested a study to investigate alternative water sources, storage, and distribution facilities for the area in and around Hawk Springs. Residents currently rely on individual wells. Some wells in the area are contaminated by high levels of dissolved solids, radionuclides, and septic system effluent.

A Level II study was completed in 1995 to evaluate storage, distribution, transmission, and water supply alternatives. The exploration program located a suitable groundwater supply west of the community. Preliminary designs, cost estimates, and economic analyses have been prepared for the preferred alternative, with the estimated total project cost at $2,145,664. The estimated monthly bill for the project is $45.49/tap. The sponsor is currently working on financing alternatives.

The WWDC recommends that the project remain on Level II-Hold status.
