Formation of the Corner Mountain Water and Sewer District was prompted by the 1995 WWDC
Level I study, which explored alternatives for providing a common source of water for area
residents. The district is located near the community of Centennial in Albany County and
encompasses 12 subdivisions and adjacent tracts along Libby Creek and the North Fork of the
Little Laramie River. Permanent and summer residents obtain water from shallow alluvial wells
and springs, or from hauling water. Well water is mostly of a quality deemed useful for washing
and flushing toilets only. The Level I study ultimately concluded that a groundwater source was
the most feasible source supply.
Two test wells drilled in early 1999-revealed valuable subsurface information in the geologically
complex terrain which underlies Corner Mountain development. The exploration effort was
seeking a deeper ground water source than that presently utilized by Centennial (Casper
Formation) or by the town of Elk Mountain (Cloverly Formation).
The Corner Mountain Water No. 3 Test Well was drilled, completed, and tested in late 2000.
Sustained yield (200 gpm) from the well meets the supply needs of the district.
