122.PROJECT:South Garden Creek Water Supply
SPONSOR:Central Wyoming Regional Water System Joint Powers Board
LOCATION:Natrona County
PROGRAM:New Development
Purpose Chapter Session Account Appropriation Due Date
Level I 7 2002 I $100,000 2004

The Central Wyoming Regional Water System Joint Powers Board in coordination with the City of Casper, seeks funding for a Level II Feasibility Study to continue the examination of the area south of Casper (and alongside Casper Mountain). This area is populated with approximately 300 residences (of varying age) and each having an individual well. During recent periods of drought, some wells have gone dry, forcing occupants to haul water. The recently completed Level I Study looked at the potential of adding this area 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. While the later two areas are seeking Level III Construction status, Squaw Creek/Wolf Creek, South Garden Creek, and Elkhorn Valley require additional study. A Level II Feasibility Study is desired which further defines the water supply options of these service areas (excluding ground water), refines the entity boundaries, and includes an environmental assessment.

The WWDC recommends the project be advanced to Level II status in the New Development Program with an appropriation of $100,000.
