122.PROJECT:Thirty-three Mile Water Supply
SPONSOR:33 Mile Road Improvement and Service District
LOCATION:Natrona County
PROGRAM:New Development
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
Level I 82 1998 I $18,000 2000
Level II 81 1999 I $50,000 2000
Level III 96 2000 I $1,044,486 2004

There are approximately 150 people (with approximately 60 taps) residing within the 33 Mile Road Improvement and Service District. Existing groundwater is generally not suitable for human or livestock use due to selenium levels resulting in residents having to haul water from nearby municipalities. Residents report bills in excess of $120/month to haul water from the Casper area or self-treating poor quality groundwater.

A Level II study was conducted to investigate options for connecting to the Pioneer Water and Sewer District or the Airport water system. The connection to the Pioneer system was chosen as the preferred alternative. The Level II study concluded that a system from Pioneer Water and Sewer District could be constructed at a cost of about $1,741,000.

The 2000 legislature provided funding in the amount of $1,044,486. This, combined with funding from the USDA Rural Utilities Service, will allow the project to commence. The district conducted a bond election on November 7 to allow it to incur the debt. Design will commence in 2001.

The design of the project is complete and construction has begun. Construction should be competed during the 2002 construction season.

No legislative action is recommended.
