SPONSOR:City of Laramie
LOCATION:Albany County

Level I 10 1994 I $200,000   1996
Level III 206 1995 II $550,000* 1999

The 1994 Master Plan study evaluated various options for expanding Laramie's water supply. The options included storage, treatment, transmission and distribution system to meet expanding demands. The study recommended a long-term schedule for improving both the surface and groundwater supply systems. In 1995 recommendations for Level III construction funding were made from both the New Development and Rehabilitation accounts.

The 1995 Rehabilitation Program appropriation addressed rehabilitation of an existing storage facility and Soldier Springs. The storage facility rehabilitation is now complete and the replacement well at Soldier Springs has been drilled. In 1997, design was completed on the replacement of portions of the water supply pipeline between the water treatment plant and the city, replacement of a portion of the raw water pipeline between Sodergreen Lake and the water treatment plant, and a new pumphouse for the Soldiers Springs replacement well. All three projects are essentially complete with only clean up work and resolution of electrical interference with the town of Walden, Colorado remaining.

No legislative action is required.
