 09. PROJECT:Basin Raw Water Pipeline
LEVEL:New Application
SPONSOR:Town of Basin, Incorporated Municipality

This project is to construct an alternate raw water transmission supply line from the Big Horn River to the Town's reservoir. The project includes installing new pumps in the existing unused pump house at the Town's abandoned water treatment facility.

The pipeline would be used to supply domestic raw irrigation water for the Town of Basin during periods when the Big Horn canal is out of service. This includes early and late season when the canal is not flowing, as well as times when the canal is under repair. This project would also enable the town to maintain their water right in the Big Horn of 3.08 cfs.

The WWDC recommends the project be incorporated into the Rehabilitation Program at Level III with an appropriation of $202,000, which is a grant for 50% of the estimated project costs.
