Because of the influx of people in the region due to energy production and construction of two new
power plants, Wright Water and Sewer District anticipates water demand in excess of the capacity of
the current system. A man camp will be located in the district holding as many as 800 to 1,000
workers. The new well contemplated in this application will be necessary to meet the increased
water demand. This application is for completion of the well, pump, controls, well house, and piping
through the well house and a pipeline connecting the well to the distribution system.
Completion is anticipated for a Fort Union well with a large diameter cased section in the top 1200
feet of the well and a smaller diameter cased section in the lower 1500 feet or so of the well. This
project includes funding for the design and construction of 5,700 feet of transmission pipeline and
RECOMMENDED LEGISLATIVE ACTION:
The WWDC recommends the project be incorporated in the Rehabilitation Program at Level III with
an appropriation of $600,000. The financing plan is a 50% grant, $300,000 and a 50% loan,
$300,000, for twenty years at 7.25% interest.
