102.PROJECT:Pursel Acres Water Project
SPONSOR:Pursel Lands Improvement & Service District
LOCATION:Natrona County
PROGRAM:New Development
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
Level I 7 2002 I $100,000 2004

The recently completed South Garden Creek Level I Study looked at the potential of adding the area south of Casper (and alongside Casper Mountain) to the City of Casper's public water supply system. Five unique service areas were identified in the Level I Study, including: Squaw Creek/Wolf Creek, South Garden Creek, Elkhorn Valley, Coates Road and Pursel Lands. The preferred water supply source for the Pursel Lands service area was identified as the City of Casper water system as an outside City retail water customer. The main City supply would be provided from a 12-inch transmission pipeline constructed under the highway from the Skyline Ranches area. Two other connections would be made to 6-inch and 8-inch water lines in Red Butte Village. Note: Distribution elements of system to be funded separately through SLIB, RUS, etc. (i.e. - meter services/fire hydrants $245,025).
