 29. PROJECT:Coates Road Water Supply
SPONSOR:Coates Road Improvement & Service Dist (pending formation)
LOCATION:Natrona County
PROGRAM:New Development
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
Level I 7 2002 I $100,000 2004

The recently completed South Garden Creek Level I Study looked at the potential of adding the area south of Casper (and alongside Casper Mountain) to the City of Casper's public water supply system. Five unique service areas were identified in the Level I Study, including: Squaw Creek/Wolf Creek, South Garden Creek, Elkhorn Valley, Coates Road and Pursel Lands. The preferred water supply source for the Coates Road service area was identified as the City of Casper water system as an outside City wholesale water customer. The area would construct a water system with smaller water lines that provide for only domestic uses. Additionally, the area would own, operate and maintain their system, and perform the meter reading, billing and the repair processes. Residents in the area are diligently pursuing entity formation. Note: Distribution elements of system to be funded separately through SLIB, RUS, etc. (i.e. - meter services $33,321). End user costs will include the capital construction cost at $17,107.35 per lot assessment or $1,097.39 per year for 20 years; monthly operation, maintenance and water costs at $116.57 per month; and one-time water connection costs of $2,512 to $4,412.

The WWDC recommends the project be incorporated in the New Development Program and advanced to Level III construction with a 50% grant-only request for an appropriation of $275,000. The balance of the project is to be financed through the SRF loan program.
