 100. PROJECT:Powell Master Plan/Powell Water Supply Rehabilitation
SPONSOR:City of Powell
LOCATION:Park County
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
Level I 36 2000 II $45,000 2002
Level III 2 2001 II $127,000 2005
Level III 88 2002 II $785,000 2007

The city of Powell would like to move forward with the recommended improvements to their water system as outlined in the Level I study funded by the WWDC in 2000. The Level I study recommended replacing the old 75,000 gallon elevated storage tank with a 400,000 elevated tank in the southwest part of town. This new storage tank will meet the storage needs of Powell well into the future.

A new pressure zone is needed in Powell to increase marginal pressures in the western part of town. Four pressure reducing valves and associated piping are also needed to complete the pressure zone. Phase 1 consists of designing the project, compiling specifications, securing construction permits and securing rights of way. Phase 2 will include the pressure reducing valves and piping construction. Phase 3 will include the construction of the storage tank and telemetry system. The Legislature provided 50% of the funds during the 2003 session to construct all three phases of the project.

In August 2002, the City's existing elevated storage tank was inspected. The interior of the tank was found to be in need of recoating, but the exterior was in acceptable condition. Since tank painters will be onsite to paint the new storage tank, the City would like to include decorating of the old tanks in the Project. This will save the city and state the cost of mobilization at a later date.

The WWDC recommends the project be continued in the Rehabilitation Program at Level III with an appropriation of $51,000. The financing plan is a 50% grant, $51,000, and 50% to be secured by the sponsor through other sources.
