This project proposal is the result of recommendations of the WWDC Level II Riverton Water
Supply Study completed by Nelson Engineering in June of 2000. The municipal and residential raw
water distribution system within the city of Riverton is an offshoot of surrounding agricultural
irrigation systems. The responsibility for operations and maintenance of the ditches, pipes, and
laterals comprising the system was assumed by the city several years ago.
The system serves approximately 200 paying customers ($98.00/user/year), but actual users are
estimated to be upwards of 400, and up to 790 users could be served by an expanded, rehabilitated
Preservation and expansion of the system would extend the life-span of the city of Riverton water
treatment plant since the present-day use of the irrigation system is estimated at 400,000 gallons/day.
Two laterals that are proposed for rehabilitation are primary laterals for Riverton Valley Irrigation
District and LeClair Irrigation District that deliver water to irrigators downstream of the city of
The City of Riverton has retained Apex Surveying to design this project. The design should be
completed during 2002.
