 71. PROJECT:McNutt Water Supply
SPONSOR:McNutt Improvement District
LOCATION:Washakie County
PROGRAM:New Development
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
Level II 82 1998 I $25,000 2000

The city of Worland installed a new water line to the Boy's School several years ago that passes very near to the sponsor's service area. At the time that line was constructed, the city installed a tap to accommodate the sponsor's future plans for a water system.

The sponsor requested assistance to complete a rural water system for their subdivision. A Level II study was performed in 1998 which shows the project to be feasible, and monthly water bills will be approximately $50/tap/month. The total project cost is estimated at $165,000, with $102,000 of that amount eligible for WWDC participation. The sponsor has requested a 60/40 grant loan split, and 7.25% financing for 30 years.

There are currently about 45 people living in the service area, with a number of unoccupied lots. They predict there will be 20 taps on their system initially, and are confident that additional requests will be made for taps once the system moves forward. The sponsor currently utilizes individual wells of marginal quality, and septic systems.

The project has been incorporated into the Washakie Rural Water Supply Project, and advanced to Level III in the New Development Program with an appropriation of $60,000 as part of the appropriation for the Washakie Rural Water Supply project.

No legislative action is required.
