 67. PROJECT:Lander Water Supply Rehabilitation
SPONSOR:City of Lander
LOCATION:Fremont County
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
Level I 8 1995 I $100,000 1996
Level II 46 1997 I $175,000 1998
Level II 81 1999 I $100,000 2000
Level III 16 1999 II $400,000 2003
Level III 96 1999 II $1,696,000 2004

The city of Lander Level III initial application submission was a request for $1,180,000 to replace the existing 20-inch asbestos cement treated water transmission pipeline from the water treatment plant to the Ellis tank, a distance of approximately 12,295 feet. Reconstruction of the Sinks Canyon Highway by the Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT) in 2002 and 2003 in conjunction with the required increase in the treatment capacity of the water treatment plant dictates that the transmission pipeline be replaced.

Water Development Account II funding was approved for the city of Lander water system during the 1999 and 2000 Legislative Sessions. In 2000, $1,696,000 (50% grant and 50% loan) was authorized for the replacement of the raw water transmission pipeline from the intake to the water treatment plant. The raw water transmission pipeline, which is 9,320 feet long, will also be affected by the WYDOT Sinks Canyon Road reconstruction.

The 2001 Legislative Session authorized an additional $400,000 appropriation and increased the project scope to include the replacement of the treated water transmission line. The total appropriation for the reconstruction of the raw and treated water transmission lines is $1,048,000, which is 50% of the estimated construction project costs.

The remaining 50% of construction costs, project engineering design costs and construction engineering costs will be provided by the combination of Sponsor and WYDOT funding. Aspen Engineering has completed design of the transmission pipelines in conjunction with intake relocation design. The combined project has been bid and is scheduled for completion in the fall of 2002.

No legislative action is required.
