 89 PROJECT:North Uinta/Bear River Water Supply
SPONSOR:North Uinta County Improvement & Service District
LOCATION:Uinta County
PROGRAM:New Development
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
Level I 81 1999 I $40,000 2000
Level II 86 2001 I $100,000 2002

The North Uinta County Improvement & Service District (NUCISD) is located 10 miles north of Evanston. The district consists of six different sections, Whitney Canyon, El Caballo 1, El Caballo 2, Lower Deer Mountain, Upper Deer Mountain 1, and Upper Deer Mountain 2. In June of 2001, these entities joined and incorporated into the Town of Bear River. During the Level I study, one of the two supply wells for the Deer Mountain subdivision began to fail. The district/town needed to drill a well in the Deer Mountain area to replace the failing well.

A successful test well was drilled in 2002 during the Level II Study. The Town acquired emergency State Land & Investment Board funding to tie the well into the existing system and has applied to WWDC for 2003 Level III funding for a new tank and transmission line.

Estimated Level III Costs: (Includes design, engineering, contingency, etc.)

Construction Costs not Covered by SLIB funds$ 37,000
Unanticipated 2002 Transmission Line Costs21,000
SUB-TOTAL$ 58,000
400,000-gallon storage tank519,703
TOTAL$ 577,703
Rounded Total for WWDC consideration$ 580,000
Purchase Price of Deer Mountain #6 Well - $34,866.28 (WWDC Loan)

The WWDC recommends the project be incorporated into the New Development Program at Level III with an appropriation of $580,000. The financing plan includes a grant for 50% of the estimated project cost ($290,000), and a loan for 50% of the estimated project cost ($290,000) at 6% interest for 30 years.
