The town of Encampment undertook construction of a new diversion facility and 1,800 feet of transmission line in 1986. Encampment would now like to pursue phase two of that project and enclose the remaining 6,200 feet of open ditch in a pipeline. The total project is estimated to cost about 800,000 The 2001 appropriation was for final design and specifications for the project. The sponsor has paid the loan portion of design expenses to date, so no loan funds have been disbursed during the design phase. The current request is for fifty percent ($400,000) of the funding to complete the project. Twenty-five percent ($200,000) of the project will be funded through RUS and twenty-five percent ($200,000) by the Town of Encampment using Capital Facilities Tax funds.

The WWDC recommends the project be incorporated into the Rehabilitation Program at Level III with a 50% grant appropriation of $400,000.
