 75. PROJECT:Moorcroft Well
SPONSOR:Town of Moorcroft
LOCATION:Crook County
PROGRAM:New Development
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
Level I 38 1992 I $35,000 1992
Level II 74 1994 I $225,000 1994
Level III 28 1994 I $930,000 1997
Level II 36 2000 I $355,000 2002

In 1992, a Level I study conducted for the town of Moorcroft recommended construction of a new storage tank, collection system and the construction of both a Lance/Fox Hills well and a Madison well. In 1994, after the conclusion of a Level II study, the town of Moorcroft constructed the new storage tank, collection system, and drilled the Lance/Fox Hills well. The town is now ready to complete the remainder of the recommendations and would like to complete the Madison well and associated pipeline. Under the current supply situation, the town can marginally meet its daily water demands. The town currently meets its high demand needs by purchasing water from the city of Gillette. This purchase of water was originally intended only to meet emergency demands and not to be a constant supply source. The town would like to see the project constructed as a Level II well project and a Level III pipeline project.

No legislative action required.
