106.PROJECT:Riverton Raw Water Supply Rehabilitation Project
SPONSOR:City of Riverton
LOCATION:Fremont County
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
Level I 46 1997 I $150,000 1998
Level II 81 1999 I $65,000 2000
Level III 2 2001 II $85,000 2005

This project proposal came from recommendations described in the WWDC Level II Riverton Water Supply Study completed by Nelson Engineering in June of 2000. The municipal and residential raw water distribution system within the city of Riverton is an offshoot of surrounding agricultural irrigation systems. The responsibility for operations and maintenance of the ditches, pipes, and laterals comprising the system was assumed by the city several years ago. The system serves approximately 200 paying customers ($98.00/user/year), but actual users are estimated to be upwards of 400, and up to 790 users could be served by an expanded, rehabilitated system.

Preservation and expansion of the system would extend the life-span of the City of Riverton water treatment plant since the present-day use of the irrigation system is estimated at 400,000 gallons/day. Two laterals that are proposed for rehabilitation are primary laterals for Riverton Valley Irrigation District and LeClair Irrigation District that deliver water to irrigators downstream of the city of Riverton system.

The City of Riverton has retained Apex Surveying to design this project. The design should be completed early spring in 2003.

No legislative action is required at this time.
