 72. PROJECT:LeClair Laterals
SPONSOR:LeClair Irrigation District
LOCATION:Fremont County
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
Level II 7 2002 II $50,000 2004

The LeClair Irrigation District would like to rehabilitate a number of their laterals in an effort to continue their conservation program as outlined initially in the WWDC Level I Report: Wind River Study: LeClair Canal and Riverton Valley (Wyoming No. 2 Canal Rehabilitation), March 1993. The study suggested piping of open-ditch laterals in a phased approach, allowing the District to implement improvements in a prioritized sequence. A subsequent 1994 Level III project began the process of installing the pipe, with WWDC financing the cost of materials and the district providing the labor for installation. Easement and access issues significantly slowed the progress of installation of pipe by the district. The district believes that it has now resolved these issues. A Level II engineering study was recently completed to update project costs from the 1993 study and to include seven additional laterals. This 2002 study recommended the installation of pipe in twelve open laterals and provided a revised estimate for rehabilitation costs totaling $1,130,000.

The WWDC recommends that the project be incorporated in the Rehabilitation program at Level III with an appropriation of $565,000, which equates to a 50% grant to be used for the purchase of materials. 50% sponsor funding will come from in-kind construction, engineering design, construction engineering, permitting, easements and installation.
