 01. PROJECT:Aladdin Water Supply
SPONSOR:Aladdin Community Water District
LOCATION:Crook County
PROGRAM:New Development
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
Level I 10 1994 I $25,000 1996
Level II 8 1995 I $275,000 1996
Level II 15 1996 I Hold 1998
Level II 82 1998 I Hold 2000
Level III 16 1999 I N/A N/A
*A block appropriation of $15,000 was made for all hold projects.

The WWDC completed a Level I study in 1994 which identified a well site and developed cost estimates and monthly rates that were acceptable to district members. The water district requested that WWDC proceed to Level II to construct a Madison test well and develop conceptual level plans for storage and transmission components.

A Level II study was completed in 1995,that identified the location of a good groundwater supply. During the Level II process the project service area was reduced to the immediate Aladdin area, which included fourteen (14) taps. Conceptual level designs and cost estimates were completed for the downsized system. The total Level III project cost was estimated at $335,000, which included the Level II well costs ($80,000), the transmission system ($235,000), and the distribution and chlorination systems ($20,000). The distribution and chlorination systems were not eligible for WWDC participation.

The district spent two years investigating funding alternatives, and have since requested only that the WWDC sell them the well with a 60/40-grant loan split. The interest rate will be 7.25% with a term of 10 years. They plan to obtain the balance of their funding from other sources.

The project will be maintained in state ownership and provisions were made to allow sale of water to the district and to the Department of Transportation from the well. Water will be sold to the district for $1.20 per 1000 gallons and to the Department of Transportation for $.50 per 1000 gallons. No appropriation is necessary because the well is already in place. This authorization will allow the state to eventually recoup its investment in the well, and the well will be put to beneficial use.

No legislative action is required.
