 64. PROJECT:Kennington Springs Master Plan
LEVEL:New Application
SPONSOR:Kennington Springs Pipeline (water corporation)
LOCATION:Lincoln County

Kennington Springs is seeking a Level I Master Plan study of their domestic water system. Located approximately 5 miles southwest of Afton, the system was built in the early 1980's and has 26 service connections. The system includes a spring intake, a 2600-gallon tank, and approximately 1.5 miles of pipe from the source to the distribution system. Significant growth in and around the surrounding area has occurred. The capacity of the spring and any possible interference with individual domestic wells in the area will be determined. An EPA violation was issued earlier in the year because of contamination of the springs. This occurred following a period of high runoff. Additional testing following the event found the system to be within EPA compliance. No additional actions were mandated, however, the project should also examine possible source water protection opportunities.

A master plan study of Kennington Springs would provide the sponsor with the information and planning tools needed to rehabilitate and update the system for the future.

The WWDC recommends the project be incorporated in the Rehabilitation Program at Level I with an appropriation of $40,000.
