128.PROJECT:Upton Tank Replacement
SPONSOR:Town of Upton
LOCATION:Weston County
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date

During the summer of 2001 a deteriorated old water storage tank for the Town of Upton developed leaks. Efforts to repair the tank were unsuccessful. As a result the town has applied to the State Land Investment Board for a Mineral Royalty grant of $158,800 for 50% of the cost of the replacement of the tank and received a Joint Powers Act loan of $158,800 for the other 50% of the project. The sponsor is providing half the funding with their funds and would like to have the loan they received replaced with a grant. The town will immediately begin construction of the 200,000 gallon replacement tank. The WWDC grant will be used to refinance the JPA loan.

The WWDC recommends the project be incorporated in the Rehabilitation Program at Level III with an appropriation of $158,800. The financing plan is a 50% grant of $158,800.
