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.
RECOMMENDED LEGISLATIVE ACTION:
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.
