 21. PROJECT:Casper Effluent Water Supply
SPONSOR:City of Casper
LOCATION:Natrona County
PROGRAM:New Development
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
Level III 96 2000 I $600,000* 2004
*60% grant, 40% loan

In 1994 the city of Casper wanted to reduce the demand on their present water supply system by installing a pipeline from the wastewater treatment plant to the North Casper Recreation Complex and the Casper Soccer Complex for irrigation of the lawns and soccer fields in the complexes. It was estimated that the project would conserve 120 acre feet per year of Casper's municipal water supply. The project would have reduced the scope of future water supply projects for Casper or the Regional Joint Powers Board.

WWDC involvement in the project would have been limited to the installation of 2,200 feet of irrigation water transmission pipeline and appurtenances. The city would have funded the pump station at the wastewater treatment plant and the pump facilities at the complexes from other sources.

In 1994, the Commission recommended that the project be incorporated into the New Development Program at Level III status with an appropriation of $150,000. The project was shutdown due to public health concerns. The money reverted back to the WWDC.

The city of Casper now has the approval of the public and has now acquired the necessary regulatory clearances on this project. The project is part of a larger project to renovate the regional wastewater treatment plant. This has resulted in delays with the construction process.

Funding for the project was approved in 2000. Design and construction of this project is temporarily postponed.

No legislative action required.
