115.PROJECT:South Garden Creek Water Supply
LEVEL:New Application
SPONSOR:Central Wyoming Regional Water System Joint Powers Board
LOCATION:Natrona County
PROGRAM:New Development

The Central Wyoming Regional Water System Joint Powers Board in coordination with the City of Casper, seeks a Level I study to examine the feasibility of adding the South Garden Creek area to the City of Casper's public water supply system. This area, to the south of Casper (and alongside Casper Mountain), is populated with approximately 100 residences (of varying age) and each having an individual well. During recent periods of drought, some wells have gone dry, forcing occupants to haul water. A study which examines not only the South Garden Creek area, but all the subdivisions along the mountain face is needed.

Other areas such as Bloody Turnip and Squaw Creek have experienced similar problems in the past and are located out of the city limits as well. Furthermore, the study would need to examine the issue of district formation.

The WWDC recommends the project be incorporated in the New Development Program at Level I with an appropriation of $100,000.
