 07. PROJECT:Baggs Master Plan
LEVEL:New Application
SPONSOR:Town of Baggs
LOCATION:Carbon County
PROGRAM:New Development
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
Level II 36 2000 I $50,000 2002

The proposed master plan project is a continuation of water projects currently underway, funded by the WWDC and the USDA Rural Utility Service, to replace the Town's infiltration gallery and upgrade the water treatment plant.

The project includes mapping, providing an evaluation of the water supply and distribution system, and developing a maintenance and/or replacement schedule for the water mains. The town's water mains are generally sixty plus years old and are a mixture of four inch and six inch asbestos cement pipe, C900 PVC pipe, Schedule 40 PVC pipe, and ductile iron pipe. The exact percentage of the various types of pipe is unknown.

The plan would also make recommendations on how best to address fire suppression and whether the town's system should be expanded beyond the city limits. The water system is plagued by low water pressure. In addition, the water system loss increased significantly in 2000.

The WWDC recommends the project be incorporated in the Rehabilitation Program at Level I with an appropriation of $40,000.
