Level I and II studies inventoried the existing system, evaluated water supply needs, and evaluated
water supply alternatives for the town of Thayne. Preliminary plans and cost estimates were
developed for the preferred alternative.
In 1998, the town of Thayne received $850,000 of Level III grant and loan assistance for
connecting the Level II test well to their system, rehabilitating their spring, and constructing a new
transmission line from the springs to the town distribution system. The grant is for 60% of the
WWDC eligible project costs with a 40% loan at 7 1/4% interest rate over thirty (30) years.
Construction of the well connection and pumphouse was completed in March, 1999. Forsgren
Associates, Inc. has completed the design of the springs improvements and transmission line which
were constructed and completed in the fall of 2000. Only project cleanup and project closeout
