 10. PROJECT:Beulah Water Supply
LEVEL:New Application
SPONSOR:Beulah Water District
LOCATION:Crook County
PROGRAM:New Development

Beulah is an unincorporated community located in extreme eastern Crook County along I-90. Residences are supplied by shallow wells along Sand Creek. Septic systems are suspected to be contaminating the alluvial aquifer after over 100 years of use. Most residents do not use their wells for potable supply. The District is interested in a central water supply system that would most likely be sourced from a deep well. The Madison Formation Aquifer is developed in this area for municipal and irrigation wells and would serve as an excellent supply for Beulah. This reconnaissance study would investigate the ground water supply option as well as transmission, storage, treatment, distribution components, and feasibility of implementation.

The WWDC recommends the project be incorporated into the New Development Program at Level I with an appropriation of $40,000.
