 87. PROJECT:Pine Bluffs Supply
SPONSOR:Town of Pine Bluffs
LOCATION:Laramie County
PROGRAM:New Development
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
Level I 10 1994 I $75,000   1996
Level II 8 1995 I $150,000   1996
Level III 96 2000 I $1,245,000* 2004
*60% grant, 40% loan (7.25%, 20 years)

The town of Pine Bluffs' water wells are currently connected to the town's distribution system. A Level I study funded by the WWDC determined that a need existed for construction of a transmission line which would connect the town's wells to the storage tanks. In 1995, a Level II study looked at rehabilitation of the town's existing wells, as well as location, sizing and costs associated with a new transmission pipeline. A subsequent Level III construction project rehabilitated one well, but was not successful in replacing another well as drilling did not encounter sufficient water. This Level III appropriation will fund construction of a transmission line that will allow the town to disinfect their drinking water in accordance with proposed federal requirements. The proposed transmission line will provide centralized disinfection and will provide a cost effective method to avoid individual disinfection equipment at each well. The town currently has six wells, of which only three are currently being disinfected, and of those, two have little to no contact time. Modifications to the distribution system are being financed with State Land Investment Board loan and grant funds.

The town has hired an engineer and design is underway. Construction is anticipated during the summer of 2001 with completion of the project by the end of the calendar year.

No legislative action is required.
