 69. PROJECT:Laramie East Side Tank
SPONSOR:City of Laramie
LOCATION:Albany County
PROGRAM:New Development
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
Level III 88 2002 I $3,955,000 2002

A Level II study and funding for Level III design for this project was included in the Laramie North Side Water Supply Project, which was funded by the legislature in 2001 and 2002. Further information regarding the history of this project can be found under the mentioned project in this report. The purpose of this project is to construct transmission lines, water storage facilities, and pump stations for the City of Laramie. The Level II study recommended that additional storage and new transmission lines be installed to provide a more reliable water supply to the East side of Laramie.

The level II study recommended that the completion of this project be undertaken utilizing a three phase construction process. The first phase, design, is nearly complete. During design the Engineers identified a new design alternative that resulted in a significant savings to the State of Wyoming and to the City of Laramie. This new design resulted in the elimination of the third construction phase of this project.

Phase one of this project will include the construction of the transmission lines and the tanks. Phase one was funded during the 2002 legislative session. This City of Laramie is currently requesting $825,000 for Phase II of this project. Phase II if approved would include the installation of a new pump station and the rehabilitation of an existing pump station. Construction for Phase I of this project is scheduled to begin in the summer of 2003.

It is recommended that additional funding of $825,000 be approved for this project.
