 66. PROJECT:Laramie West Storage
SPONSOR:City of Laramie
LOCATION:Albany County
PROGRAM:New Development
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
Level III 16 1999 I $2,950,000 2002

The Laramie Airport Joint Powers Board has received a tax based funding package to provide additional water service to the airport from the city of Laramie. This will include a transmission line and storage among other water system needs for the airport.

The 1998 Level II project examined a joint construction project with the city of Laramie and the airport to provide additional service to the airport and to the West Laramie area at the same time. Laramie has requested additional funding for the airport project to enlarge the new storage facility, increase the new transmission line size and construct a loop in the existing water system to provide improved service to the expanding west Laramie area. Laramie is currently experiencing low pressure service to the Seven Mile area west of Laramie. The Nine Mile area would also like to receive water from the Laramie system which would require additional water quantity and pressure from the system.

Standby generators were also examined in the Level II study. When other alternatives are available, standby power supplies should be funded by other non WWDC funding sources. Most short term water supply needs can be handled by storage which is eligible for WWDC funding. Therefore, this recommendation does not include funding for standby generators.

This project is partially funded by the Laramie Airport Board. Airport funding will construct improvements to provide fire flow and drinking water at the airport from the tank and supply lines constructed under this project.

Design of the improvements began in 1999, however right of way acquisition issues delayed the project. Agreement was reached with the property owner in late 1999. This project will begin construction in 2000. As of late 2000, the project is on schedule and completion is anticipated in 2001.

No legislative action is required.
