 12. PROJECT:Big Piney Water Supply
SPONSOR:Town of Big Piney, Incorporated Municipality
LOCATION:Sublette County
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
II 10 1994 I $200,000 1996
III 206 1995 I $410,000 1999
III 59 1996 I $590,000 1999

The 1994 WWDC Level II Study for Big Piney/Marbleton recommended upgrades for Big Piney, including those that are being requested in this project. These upgrades are designed to increase system reliability, improve public health and safety, provide emergency and fire suppression water, and increase overall system operating efficiency. As a small town with limited resources and a stable population, Big Piney has worked since 1994 to develop priorities for improvements that will achieve the most value. The proposed improvements include a new 200,000 gallon elevated storage tank, updated well system controls, conversion to liquid chlorination (not WWDC eligible - treatment), a new supply well, and a transmission line connecting the Big Piney and Marbleton water supply systems.

The WWDC recommends the project be incorporated into the Rehabilitation Program at Level III with an appropriation of $475,000 (50% Grant).
