 12. PROJECT:Big Horn Regional JPB-Pipeline
SPONSOR:Big Horn Regional Joint Powers Board
LOCATION:Big Horn, Washakie, Hot Springs Counties
PROGRAM:New Development
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
Level II 36 2000 I $160,000 2002
Level II 86 2001 I $670,000 2002

The 2000 WWDC Level II Study by BRS Inc. completed an investigation of routing a second transmission pipeline from the Worland well field down the Nowood River valley then south to Worland. Along this route the pipeline would connect with South Big Horn Rural JPB system (SBHRJPB, supplied by Manderson wells) and with Washakie Rural Service & Improvement District (supplied by Worland). Worland's existing 24" pipeline from its well field has failed twice recently, demonstrating the vulnerability of their potable water supply. The Level II also explored conceptual plans for a Greybull River pipeline crossing is needed to close a gap in the northern portion of the regional system between SBHRJPB and the Town of Greybull. Additionally, the BRS study looked at feasibility of a rural supply system in Hot Springs County as a component of the whole regional system. It was revealed that chlorination facilities in northern Hot Springs County are needed because of low chlorine residuals in that portion of the regional system.

This Level III request is for construction of that portion of the alternate regional pipeline from the City of Worland's existing well field to the users in the Big Horn Basin; a regional pipeline crossing the Big Horn River; and, a regional chlorination facility in northern Hot Springs County.

The WWDC recommends the project be incorporated in the New Development program at Level III with an appropriation of $5,500,000.
