 80. PROJECT:North Alpine Junction Water Supply
SPONSOR:Lincoln County Commissioners/Town of Alpine
LOCATION:Lincoln County
PROGRAM:New Development
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
Level I 8 1995 I $35,000   1996
Level II 15 1996 I Hold   1998
Level II 82 1998 I Hold   2000
Level II 36 2000 I Hold* 2002
*A block appropriation of $15,000 was made for all hold projects

The project would serve 450 residents with 230 taps in the unincorporated area north of the Snake River. The current Alpine Water Supply project is currently involved with approximately the same number of residents and taps in the incorporated area south of the river. The Lincoln County Commissioners, as well as the town of Alpine, are concerned about the rapid development in the Alpine Junction area. They would like to develop a master plan for water (and sewer) service to serve the region including the residents of the areas north and south of the Snake River. The town of Alpine is also considering regionalization of the area and had a connecting pipeline placed in the plans of the new Snake River Bridge when it was constructed in the summer of 1995.

The applicants would like to drill a test well in the north area around the Port of Entry and also do some pump testing in that area. They would also like to complete additional population growth projections and reevaluate the land ownership in the Alpine area. Due to the rapid growth and changing of land ownership in the area, it will be hard to determine the service area and district boundaries at the present time. Therefore, it is recommended to place this project in the hold category until a district is formed. After a district is formed, the project will be eligible for Level II funding.

The WWDC recommends that the project be retained at Level II-Hold status.
