The Salt Creek Water District wishes to make improvements to their existing system. The district also wishes to build pipelines to connect to a regional, Newcastle area system that was recommended in the 1999 Level II study. This project includes the district's purchase of the SCWD No. 1 Well drilled by WWDC in 1999 with directional drilling technology and completed in the Madison formation aquifer.

The Level III appropriation will finance purchase of the pump, plumbing, and controls to connect the SCWD No. 1 Well into the district's water delivery system. The appropriation will also finance construction of a pipeline to connect the well and to replace old transmission pipe.

Construction is underway on the well appurtenances and control building. Design is complete on the transmission pipeline, with construction and completion of the project anticipated in 2003.

No legislative action is required.
