 72. PROJECT:Manville Water Supply
SPONSOR:Town of Manville
LOCATION:Niobrara County
PROGRAM:New Development
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
Level III 38 1998 I $69,000 2001

The town is presently served by two wells about 200 feet deep into the Arikaree formation. The wells are 70 years old, located only about 30 feet apart. The town recently completed renovation of their 25,000 gallon storage tank, using State Land and Investment Board funds, and has diligently maintained the distribution portion of their system. In 1996, the Commission recommended that the project be incorporated into the New Development Program at Level II with a budget of $200,000. This Level II project consisted of a well siting study, construction and testing of production-sized well, and conceptual plans and cost estimates for converting the test well to production status and connecting the new well to the town's existing distribution system.

The well was successfully completed, and converted to a production well.

The remainder of the project is to complete the piping from the new well to the town's storage tank, modernize the control building, and install associated controls. Bids were opened in the fall of 1998. Project is essentially complete with only minor work items remaining.

No legislative action required.
