 19. PROJECT:Canyon/Sunset/Newcastle Area Water Supply
LEVEL:New Application
SPONSOR:Canyon Improvement & Service District/Sunset Ranch Water District
LOCATION:Weston County
PROGRAM:New Development

Residents in the Salt Creek and Beaver Creek valleys, north and east of Newcastle wish to investigate the feasibility, and determine costs associated with developing a water supply system. Currently, the water supply for these individuals are domestic wells that supplemented by water hauling. Domestic wells in this area are, for the most part, non-potable. The Madison Formation Aquifer which has been developed by the City of Newcastle and other entities in the area and would be an excellent source supply for these residents as well. The study will be initiated by a reconnaissance investigation of the area so that potential beneficiaries are well informed of the costs associated with project implementation. One purpose of the study is to determine if existing supplies are sufficient to serve these areas.

The WWDC recommends the project be incorporated into the New Development Program at Level II with an appropriation of $75,000.
